Our state-of-the-art CNC lathes ProvideExtremely tight tolerances
APS has the capability to maintain extremely tight tolerances with state-of-the-art CNC lathes. When coupled with a well-researched design and extreme testing, the result is a longer-lasting disc with higher performance and greater safety margins.
After machining, the discs are subjected to a proprietary heat treatment process that gives the discs their characteristic appearance. APS brakes are not only aesthetically pleasing but offer enhanced wear characteristics and have a high resistance to corrosion and longer life associated with the thermal cycling experienced in the aircraft braking environment.
The corrosion protection also makes the discs particularly suited for agricultural aircraft that are exposed to harsh chemicals as well as aircraft located in coastal areas and aircraft that are left outside on the ramp full time.
A good many of our staff at APS are pilots and we know how important it is to you to trust your braking equipment. In a highly regulated and safety-conscious industry such as aviation, APS goes beyond FAA and industry requirements to ensure that you can brake with confidence.
