Whippany Actuation Systems

Whippany Actuation Systems designs and manufactures electromechanical motion-control subsystems for the aerospace industry. The Company produces proprietary motion-control actuators, motors, high-power mechanical transmissions and control electronics. Actuators on aircraft perform a number of critical functions including adjusting flight control surfaces like the elevator, rudder and ailerons, extending and retracting landing gear, positioning engine inlet guide vanes, thrust reversers or cargo bay doors, and actuating flaps, slats and spoilers.

In the past, actuation systems for these applications used manual sources like cables and rods. More recently, they’ve transitioned to hydraulically- and electrically-driven solutions. These new technologies have improved reliability, safety and energy efficiency, and they’re making aircraft more affordable to fly by reducing weight and fuel consumption.
