Torque tubes for civil aviation
Our collaboration with Boeing and global leadership in the supply of precision shafts provide us with the skills necessary to produce custom-made torque tubes in co-design with our customers.
The torque tubes can be manufactured with various configurations:
Simple riveted tube shafts;
Complex assemblies machined by electromagnetic forming (EMF);
Hybrid riveted configurations (simple configuration plus EMF).
Umbragroup’s torque tubes: the advantages
The introduction of electromagnetic forming (EMF), which allows to join dissimilar metals such as an aluminum tube shaft to a steel coupling, adds further advantages to the improved strength and performance of our torque tubes:
Higher weight reduction;
Lower customization costs.
