Umbra has extended its global leadership beyond aerospace ballscrews to the design and production of high quality acme screws that are deployed mainly in engine thrust reverse applications. By maintaining the majority of its special process and heat treatment capabilities within its main production facility, moreover, Umbra can dramatically reduce lead times and increase manufacturing efficiency within its acme screw product portfolio.
There are a large number of applications for acme screws, tie rod and no-back brake produced by the company. Umbra, in fact, stands ready to support you with global engineering leadership, deep vertical manufacturing integration, and decades of high volume production experience. In particular, this kind of products can be useful for:
Likewise, Umbra has also quickly developed a global expertise in the design and production of HSTA safety rods. In addition to the many advantages previously highlighted above, Umbra’s work in the safety rod sector had been dramatically enhanced by its 35-year design and production history with the ballscrew and the other mating parts of the horizontal stabilizer’s mechanical components. As a result, Umbra is able to offer design and production support for safety rods, no-back brakes, bearings, gears and ballscrews and all of the major mechanical components found in the complete HSTA system.
