Boeing 787

Curtiss-Wright Controls, long a trusted partner to Boeing, produces the cargo door mechanism and other components for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the most technologically advanced planes in the world. Dubbed the Dreamliner, this wide-body twin-engine jet airliner will carry up to 330 passengers. This innovative airplane uses composite materials for most of its construction, Resulting in much improved fuel-efficiency, which will enable more longer non-stop flights and new routes.


How We Serve This Platform

Position Sensors

A position sensors is an electromechanical sensors that offer position feedback. The Linear sensors are measured in length of ranges from .2” to 196” (5mm to 5,000mm) while the Rotary sensors measurement angles from 10° to 360°. These position sensors, Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDT’S) or Rotary Position Sensors (RVDT’s) utilize proven technology such as inductance, potentiometric, eddy current and hall effect to measure length or angular rotation, accurately and reliably for your position measurement needs.

A Solenoid is an electromagnetic device or driver that typically produces a uniform magnetic field that is utilized in multiple configurations and applications.  The most commonly application using solenoid technology would be a hydraulic or pneumatic valve that can be configured in multiple options such as a 2-way, 3-way, latching, pusher or puller type valves. Most solenoids may be configured with multiple coil options for redundancy as well as integrating diodes for various levels of protection.
