Reaching new heights with RUBIG technology

back to overview

RUBIG technology once again scales new heights. This time, however, it is on the drive systems respectively the main rotor mast and main gearbox of a civilian Russian transport helicopter. That particular helicopter can move its 6.5 tons (not including the 17 passengers) with a speed of up to 310 km/h.

A total of 106 components, including mainly shafts, gears, sleeves and spacer rings, are heat treated at RUBIG Heat Treatment. The processes used include case hardening for a case hardening depth of 0.35 to 2 mm max as well as vacuum hardening and quenching and tempering for a hardness of 50 to 60 HRC each. RUBIG furnaces thereby comply with AMS Standard 2750, i.e. it guarantees:

  • temperature uniformity in the working chamber
  • instrumentation (specification of the measuring and control equipment)
  • calibration of the measuring section from the controller via the measuring line to the thermocouple
  • Tests of the system accuracy

At RUBIG Competence Center, RCC for short, even the most system-critical components are put through their paces. In this way, RUBIG can meet and guarantee the highest quality and safety standards.
