APS Achieves 1000th Legacy Propeller Blade Overhaul
Posted: 2015 Dec 17


Aircraft Propeller Service (APS) announced recently the completion of the machine cut and cold rolled process on its 1000th legacy propeller blade fillet radius. The work was performed on a Hamilton Sundstrand blade, which was made in 1986. The blade belonged to a 14RF-19 propeller used on the SAAB 340B type aircraft. The machine cut and cold roll repair process enables a blade to go back on the engine for at least another overhaul cycle.

Dennis Santare APS Vice President of Sales and Marketing noted that through high quality maintenance and repair processes, the life of propeller systems can be significantly extended, while at the same time the costs associated with their extended lifecycle dramatically reduced.

According to Santare, “Without the recipe of OEM support, high technology, skilled hands, and a sound approach, 1000 blades would have otherwise found their way to the scrap heap.”

APS is the sole license holder for all of the Americas for provision of this proprietary process which was moved from Hamilton Sundstrand’s Long Beach facility in 2003, when the manufacturer closed the facilities and elected to license the repairs to APS.
