The challenges associated with using composites as a replacement for aluminum reside primarily in the complex manufacturing processes and technologies for fabricating composite parts. The high cost of composites material and its manufacturing complexity have been inhibitors to the wide transfer of this technology to the non-aerospace market. The search for solutions to high manufacturing costs and efficient manufacturing processes have resulted in intense research by government, aerospace industry companies, and space agencies worldwide.

This one day seminar presents an overview of seals and sealing system design for military and commercial aircraft. It is aimed to provide engineers having some previous actuator and control valve design background with an understanding of the general hardware groove standards, standard parts for static applications and how seal designs and sealing systems can be best used in dynamic reciprocating and rotary applications. Information will be provided regarding seal material and fluid compatibility, friction drag, expected wear rates depending on operating conditions and duty cycle, hardware surface finish and topography.

One of the main advantages of the precision forging process is the reduction in material consumption due to the achievement of close tolerances and the reduction of machining requirements to meet final component specifications. However, to achieve these results comes at a cost. One of the primary issues with precision forgingis the reduction in life of the tools used in the forming process. Manufacturers can mitigate some of these concerns by better understanding how tools can be designed specifically for the precision forging process and how personnel can effectively apply precision forging techniques.

The advancement of forging technologies and processes has enabled the increased use of forged products to meet the demanding requirements of strength, durability, and reliability. While forgings are commonly used in aerospace manufacturing, the ability to make use of precision forging processes and techniques is critical when manufacturing gas turbine components. Realizing the benefits of accuracy and quality that precision forging brings to product manufacturing requires those involved with design and manufacturing have an understanding of industry accepted technology and processes.
