Aircraft Propeller Service Develops Unique Hub Repair Solution

Aircraft Propeller Service, has developed an innovative brush-plating repair solution for a damaged, Cad-plated steel torque plate on propeller hubs. The new solution reduces the repair cost on damaged Cad-plated steel by one-third. There is a tremendous environmental benefit as well as the re-plating now allows the use of the old parts, which delivers a significant energy saving when compared to what is required to produce a new part.

APS Vice President of Sales and Marketing Dennis Santare said, “I have to hand it to our technical team for their commitment to our customers. They developed a process that not only increases the lifespan of a critical component, but also delivers significant savings directly to our customers’ maintenance budgets. These efforts make APS and our customers more competitive.” Older plates were Cad-plated, unlike newer torque plates, which are un-plated. Hence for the older parts there was no approved way to re-use the part once the Cad plating is damaged. With OEM approval for this repair process, customers will be able to derive cost savings by repairing the par instead of being forced to acquire a new one.
