Custom Shock Absorbers for the Aviation and Aerospace Industries

Taylor Devices is in its seventh decade as a key supplier to the aerospace, aviation and military industries with an established track record of success. 

Liquid Spring-Damper for Carrier-Based Aircraft Arresting Hook

For the last 60 years, Taylor Devices has been developing custom-engineered shock absorbers and spring assemblies for the aviation and aerospace industries. Our products meet the strict environmental and precision requirements that are demanded by the industry.

History of Performance

Conventional systems from other manufacturers have been plagued by the effects of long-term creep, rate variability, manufacturing tolerances, and aging. Our latest landing gear shock absorber configurations have overcome these challenges by improved design, methodology and in the strict control of our manufacturing processes.  

Variations of our industrial crane buffer designs and are typically used for customized energy absorbers, vibration isolators, shock isolators, landing gear components and suspension systems. Our new landing gear shock is lighter, smaller and less expensive than conventional air/oil landing gear shocks. They require zero maintenance and there is no need for a pressurization cart.

These products have been recently tested through a non-operating temperature range of -123° F to +185°F and an operating temperature range of -65° F to +160° F.

For 60+ years Taylor Devices, Inc. has been a key supplier to aircraft manufacturers that require a maintenance free system that can operate in the harshest of environments. Our landing gear systems use a non-pressurized design that is inherently safer and capable of operating at the most extreme of temperatures. Its lightweight and compact design allows for a greater payload and increased aircraft range at a reduced cost, with increased durability and performance when compared to conventional landing gear systems. Design solutions are custom tailored to customer requirements and limited only by the imagination.

Key Advantages of Landing & Arresting Gear

  • Superior performance, reliability and safety compared to high-pressure gas systems.
  • Reduced cost compared to conventional landing gear systems.
  • Reduced weight and compact size permit greater payload and/or range.
  • Fully qualified design and flawless performance record through extensive field usage
  • Improved resistance to enemy fire with non-pressurized designs
  • The most efficient non-linear output performance.
  • Extremely wide operating temperature range with virtually no change in output characteristics.
  • There is no possibility of a ground loop or nose-over when the damaged aircraft must land.
  • ZERO maintenance, zero recharge, zero downtime.
  • Minimize acceleration under all scenarios
