Aircraft brakes are critical components for commercial aircraft and their proper function is vital during takeoff, landing and taxiing. Along with landing gear, aircraft wheels and brakes are critical to ensure safe and reliable aircraft ground operations under extreme forces, stress, as well as wear and tear from general operation and the environment. Aircraft brakes are arranged in multiple disk pairs, which are commonly referred to as Brake Heat Sink. They are also referred to as Heat Packs due to their capacity convert the kinetic energy of the moving aircraft into heat energy.
Conventional steel or powder metallurgy brakes are also still used bu they are gradually replaced by carbon brakes (particularly on larger, long-haul commercial airplanes) due to their higher efficiency in braking applications, longer life-span, lower weight and resulting less fuel consumption and lower CO2 emission by the engines.
In co-operation with quality manufacturers, steel and carbon heat packs are offered as part of our own labelled (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines. These heat packs are PMA approved (*) by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for use on an extensive list of Western and Eastern commercial (civil ) aircraft platforms including Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell Douglas, Ilyushin and others. They are offered in an extensive product range and consist cost effective alternatives equalling or exceeding standards of the respective OEM products while featuring high quality, safety, improved design, significant cost savings and fast deliveries.
