The ram air turbine (RAT) is an ingenious device on various types of aircraft, primarily being used during emergencies to power critical systems when the main engines or generators fail. A RAT operates on the principle of harnessing the kinetic energy from air during forward movement, converting it into mechanical power that drives a hydraulic pump or an electrical generator. This conversion process hinges on the speed at which the aircraft is moving, as airflow dynamics directly impact the turbine's ability to generate power. Consequently, understanding the minimum speed necessary for a ram air turbine to function effectively is vital for both pilots and aerospace engineers. Read more >>

Planetary gearboxes are special motion control tools typically used by vehicles as an essential piece of automatic transmission equipment. Specifically, planetary gearboxes are a form of gearbox where the input and output have the same center of turning. This formation has several gears spinning in one direction and “orbiting” an interior gear, giving planetary gearboxes their name. This blog provides a short overview of planetary gearboxes, so that way you can best make an informed decision when considering multiple components for your assembly. Read more >>
