Aeronautical test benches
BCSA GEAR has been a world leader in the design, manufacturing construction and commissioning of test benches, test stands and testing systems in the aeronautical industry for over 50 years.
Aeronautical industry: aircraft engine test cell
Mechanical inertia simulator for jet engine test bench (full power and full speed). The test bench is placed between the jet engine and the loading machine (12 MW at 11,500 rpm)
Complete aircraft test bench solution
Complete aircraft test bench (Power electrical and control cabinet, remote controlled by PLC) for plane alternator with temperature and vibrations monitoring.
Helicopter gearbox test bench
Multipurpose test bench for helicopter main transmission boxes. Complete test bench including the whole mechanical system for starting rotation and loading, control and data acquisition, with automatic loading systems (4 MW at 27,000 rpm)
Approval tests on aeronautical test systems
All aeronautical test systems are tested on our own test stands, in our factory and according to a procedure agreed with our customers. All functionalities are tested and all characteristic data recorded in a test report supplied with the complete documentation of the system.
Aircraft generator test stand
Aircraft test equipment including the whole electro-mechanical drive system (variable speed motor, speed increaser gearbox and lubrication pump unit) and the control and monitoring systems (VF controller, temperature monitoring and vibration monitoring)
Supercharger test bench
Test bench for development of new generations of jet engine superchargers including the whole electro-mechanical drive system (variable speed motor, speed increaser gearbox and lubrication unit) and the control and monitoring systems (VF controller, temperature monitoring and vibration monitoring)
