Helipebs Controls: Keep Calm and Buy Actuators

Headquartered in Gloucester, England, Helipebs Controls is a leading in-house developer and manufacturer of hydraulic and pneumatic components and sub-assemblies catering to the oil & gas, fatigue testing, pharmaceutical, green energy, and tool making markets. Founded in 1968, Helipebs Controls is proudly entirely British-owned.Notably, Helipebs Controls’ technologies support the Airbus A340-600 and A340-500 super-stretch jetliners.

Airbus contracted Helipebs Controls for the testing of the A340-600’s and A340-500’s aircraft landing gear systems. To conduct testing, Helipebs constructed an exact replica of the two jetliners’ aircraft landing gear system which called for reproducing the wheels, tires, and the corresponding hydraulic and control hardware. Produced at a cost of USD$13 million each, this contract birthed the largest ever Airbus landing gear system test rig.To confirm complete integration of the landing gear systems with the Airbus A340-600/500 jetliner before its operational deployment, Helipebs Controls put the systems through a rigorous testing program consisting of six thousand performance cycles. The Helipebs Controls-produced rig enabled engineers from the Airbus UK team to evaluate the new landing gear technologies before the aircraft’s maiden flight. The engineers from the Helipebs Controls team assisted the Airbus UK engineers with the design of the attachments located between the main test frame and aircraft’s undercarriage system. In addition to Airbus, Helipebs Controls products provide definitive solutions to the following clients’ valve technology needs:
