Formed steel part for helicopter transmission by Georg Martin


SONY DSCGeorg Martin GmbH, a German supplier with extensive experience in toolmaking, mechanical engineering and forming technology, recently produced an intricate component made of a rust-free special steel alloy for a helicopter transmission. The three-dimensional precision formed part with numerous drill holes has an outer diameter of 200 mm and wall thicknesses of up to 1.0 mm. It satisfies the high precision and quality requirements for transmission elements in the aviation industry in all respects.

In addition to deep-drawing, bending and punching, Georg Martin’s range of metalworking performances includes all aspects of machining technology, laser cutting and combined CNC laser cutting and punching. Quality is assured using optical and tactile processes on 2-D and 3-D measuring machines of the latest generation. In this way, Martin’s forming technology sector provides a performance which is tailor-made for the manufacture of geometrically complex formed parts. To round it all off, the company covers the realisation of complete sub-assemblies with numerous connection and joining technology processes, from riveting and flanging through WIG and MIG/MAG welding to gluing. High-quality surface and heat treatment is assured through close cooperation with partner companies.helicopter-trasmission

The manufacture of transmission parts for the aviation industry also means that Martin is predestined as a supplier of high-quality, demanding formed parts for the automotive industry and general mechanical and plant engineering applications. The company is certified in accordance with the standards EN9100, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 and has supplier approval from Airbus, Airbus Helicopters and Rolls Royce. Production is in conformance with RoHS, PFOS and REACH.

By the way, Martin is also one of the top companies in Europe when it comes to the manufacture of high-quality shims for the quick and low-cost tolerance compensation of components when mounting sub-assemblies (metal, composites). The laminated, packaged and solid shims of the M-Tech product family are to be found today in all key sectors – above all in the drive technology, mechanical engineering and aviation industries.
