A number of technological investments enable us to service wheel components quicker and to higher tolerances than many of our competitors, saving our clients both time and expense.
Our dedicated, high-pressure wheel washing machine cleans deeper into recesses, removing corrosive carbon dust build-up from aircraft brake pads, often without the need to disassemble parts. Saving this disassembly time can significantly speed up the shop timeline. Not only does the wheel washer accomplish the same component cleaning task without the disassembly time, it eliminates the time and inconvenience (and burden!) of having our technicians don a great deal of protective clothing. And it allows technicians to multitask while wheel cleaning is underway. The wheel washing machine far exceeds the standards of cleanliness required for inspection. Better cleaning allows for better inspection of re-certifiable parts once brake and tire residue has been removed.
The electric torque wrench in the Bauer Howden wheel building machine is four times more accurate than a standard click-type torque wrench – another example of our technology enabling us to be significantly more accurate than manufacturer specifications dictate.
