Our Demand for Wheels and Brakes
Humans travel a lot. Whether by car or by plane, as a collective, humans travel a lot. And in doing so, we’ve driven an entire industry without even knowing it. To be specific, the wheels and brakes industry. From manufacturing to maintenance and servicing, the wheels and brakes of aircraft and ground vehicles alike have begun to develop at alarming speeds.
Today, in addition to hydraulic brakes such as steel and carbon, there are all-electric brakes and electro-hydraulic brakes. Currently, the market is saturated with carbon and electro-hydraulic brakes, effectively ending the widespread use of steel brakes and “old” hydraulics. However, with the demand for brakes being directly correlated to worldwide passenger traffic and cargo trade, perhaps composite and all-electric brakes will begin to replace them too. After all, innovation is driven almost purely by demand. An increase in air passenger traffic ensures the need for lighter, more durable, and cost-efficient options.
But, the demand is not limited to just wheels and brakes, but also the all the services involved. For example, the MRO industry is seeing a surge in orders for wheel and brake maintenance and repairs. Testing and certifying these parts is also important. Testing a component is a very precise thing, a component won’t pass a test, and will therefore not be certified if there are deviations from the allowed limits. In addition to what they already do, MROs are finding that they need to test and certify a growing number of parts and components as airliners are adding newer aircraft to their existing fleets and now require both new and top-of-the-line parts and equipment as well as obsolete ones.
