Doors

Kaman Aerosystems provides “design and build” and “build-to-print” composite/metal door assemblies through Tier I and Super Tier II capabilities.

These solutions include program, supply chain, design, and tooling management; assembly; and fit-out of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems.  Aerosystems also provides global manufacturing and kitting of detail sheet metal, extrusion and machined parts, and sub-assemblies for doors.

Kaman Specialty Bearings provides many parts for door and door assemblies that help to reduce misalignment and to provide long life and low wear.

Some of the parts provided include self aligning door stop pins, locking mechanisms and cam followers.

Engine/Thrust

Kaman Specialty Bearings offers a high temperature bearing liner system used for variable inlet guide vanes, unison rings, blocker door actuators and slide blocks.

The RWG division provides high temperature capable metal to metal bearings for the same type of application.

Kaman Composite Structures is is a key supplier for the supply of thrust reverser and nacelle panels into Aircelle (Safran), for the Rolls Royce Trent 700 Project.

The parts are a range of monolithic and sandwich panels, produced from carbon fibre composite and honeycomb.

Wings

Kaman Aerosystems provides “design and build” and “build-to-print” composite/metal wing/winglet structures and control surfaces, including program, supply chain, design, and tooling management; assembly; and fit-out of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems.

Kaman Aerosystems also provides global manufacturing and kitting of detail sheet metal, extrusion and machined parts, and sub-assemblies for wings.

Kaman's Kamatics bearings are widely used in flight control applications, providing low friction, smooth operation and low wear rates.

Some examples are trim tabs and PCU's (aileron/elevators), flap & slat track rollers and horizontal stabilizer pivots. RWG offers a wide range of spherical bearings for the high lift system, such as flap attachement. RWG also offers rolling element bearings for track rollers and transmissions.

Kaman Composite Structures has extensive knowledge and experience supporting OEM’s on a range of wing products.

These solutions include CFC Upper / Lower Structural Sandwich Panel Assemblies, flight controls such as Aileron Assemblies, and composite Winglets. Kaman Composites offers our customers extensive knowledge and experience in supporting OEM’s on a range of wing products.

Rudder

Kaman Aerosystems provides “design and build” and “build-to-print” composite/metal control surfaces.

These solutions include program, supply chain, design, and tooling management; assembly; and fit-out of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems.  We also provide global manufacturing and kitting of detail sheet metal, extrusion and machined parts, and sub-assemblies for control surfaces.

Kaman's Kamatics bearings are typically used on rudder actuators, hinges and trim tabs, providing long wear life and maintenance free operation.

The RWG division offers low friction rolling element bearings for rudder actuation and hinges.

Kaman Composite Structures, in conjunction with Boeing, developed the latest generation of leading edges for the 787 model.

We are currently producing aluminum skinned with aluminum honeycomb core compound contour metal bonded rudder sections.
