Tungsten alloy helicopter shoes are one of the components in the plane which is used on the ground parking, slide, landing taxiing used to support the weight of the plane crash, absorb energy.Tungsten heavy alloy helicopter shoes can absorb and consume the hit energy when the plane landed. Tungsten heavy alloy helicopter shoes have four functions:
Firstly, under gravity when the plane on the ground parking, sliding, taking off, running smooth and landing.
Secondly, bearing, consuming and absorbing the energy and turbulence when the plane landed in ground.
Thirdly, braking while the plane sliding.
Lastly, Steering airplanes while the plane sliding.
As is known to us all, tungsten alloy has so many advantages such as
high density, high melting point, small volume, excellent hardness,
superior wearing resistance, high ultimate tensile strength, high
ductility, high temperature resistance, good corrosion resistance,
excellent thermal stability and thermal shock resistance, etc. Tungsten
alloy is the perfect material to make helicopter because of the high
melting point and superior wearing resistance. When the plane landing
and sliding, the speed is very fast, so the friction is so big and it
can produce a lot of heat, tungsten alloy helicopter shoes can
resistant this problems and keep the plane land safely. Good corrosion
resistance is another advantage for tungsten alloy to make helicopter
shoes, when the helicopter emergency landing, it does have the choice
of the ground, the product can not be corrosion when the environment is
AH-1 Super Cobra is also equipped with tungsten alloy helicopter shoes. AH-1 Super Cobra is is a twin-engine attack helicopter based on the AH-1 Cobra which developed by Bell.
AH-1 Super Cobra serves in the U.S. Marine. Otherwise, it is also adopted in Korea, Japan or other countries.
