News vs. Blog

News vs. Blog

News vs. Blog

Here at Avtron, we recently decided to take a new look at our online presence. This included trying to improve some of the ways we were communicating and engaging with our customers and visitors.

We started by taking a look at the News section of our website. This is where we had previously shared updates about our business, tradeshows we were attending, and some of our proudest engineering feats. When we first redid our website, this seemed like the right thing to do and has been received pretty well by our visitors.

Blog

After a little bit of analysis and research, we changed the News section of our website into a dedicated blog. While a new name doesn’t seem to be much of a difference, we felt there were some inherent advantages to this approach. Some of those include:

-The term “news” felt limited in what we could publish. While our old page allowed us to keep our readers up to date on stories from Avtron, we wanted to expand our reach into new areas and topics. We’d like to benefit all of our customers and website visitors by providing valuable content for our entire industry.

-A blog, by being more general, could certainly include all of the old topics we used to write about. This flexibility means we can keep people updated on news stories about Avtron just like we used to, while being more inclusive on topic ideas.

-A blog invites response from our readers. We love getting feedback and opinions on how we can improve, and a blog gives us more space to engage with our website visitors. We’re eager to hear what’s on your minds.

News

In writing this article, we hoped to provide a little bit of help to other companies that might be facing the same question. There are, of course, some instances where News might be a little more fitting for the section of your website dedicated to new posts. Some advantages to News articles as opposed to blog posts include:

-A more defined purpose. For some organizations, the best way to keep your audience’s attention is by sharing very specific updates about your company.

-A “timeline” of your company. A News section creates a timeline that readers can follow and watch as a company grows.

Verdict

To conclude, all of these reasons contributed to our transition. We’ll be publishing more frequently, focusing on topics that can help our customers, interest our readers, and contribute to the larger Aerospace community. If you’d like to keep up with our recent posts, you can do so on our blog page here.

Safe Fuel Systems selects Avtron Aerospace for Hydraulic Expansion

Safe Fuel Systems, Inc. (Hialeah, Florida) announces the purchase of the Avtron Aerospace H205 Hydraulic Component Test System with H402-50S Hydraulic Power Unit and Next Generation ADAS for data acquisition. With this purchase, Safe Fuel adds the ability to service a wider range of hydraulic components including Power Control Units, Servo Actuators, Servo Control Manifolds, Autopilots, and THSA’s. “Choosing Avtron’s test stand will give us the peace of mind needed to accomplish our vision and goals for 2015 and beyond,” says Rafael Fuentes, President, Safe Fuel Systems. “It is the most comprehensive and technically advanced equipment in the market for Hydraulics.”

The new Avtron test equipment will replicate aircraft hydraulic pressures, demands and flow rates specified in testing requirements for a variety of components used in newer fleets. The ability to control pressures up to 5,000psi and capture data via Avtron’s newly redesigned ADAS unit ensures Safe Fuel will be prepared to support next generation aircraft platforms such as the Boeing 787, Airbus A350 and A380.

Safe Fuel Systems will be one of the first MRO facilities in the U.S. to own the Next Generation ADAS, the newly redesigned version of Avtron’s popular data acquisition system. By pairing ADAS with the Avtron H205 test bench, Safe Fuel will add to their capability as well as improve the efficiency and quality of their current component test process.

Aero Accessories Selects Avtron H355 & Next Generation ADAS

Aero Accessories (Miramar, Florida) announces the purchase of the Avtron Aerospace H355 Universal Hydraulic Component Test System with H402-50S Hydraulic Power Unit and Next Generation ADAS for data acquisition. With this purchase, Aero Accessories will have the ability to support the widest range of hydraulic components possible with one Avtron test console including Flight Control Actuation, Autopilot Controls, Servos, and Power Control Units.

David Vail, President, Aero Accessories offered the following comments regarding the decision to purchase new hydraulic test equipment from Avtron Aerospace: “We recognize how competitive the hydraulic component repair market is so when Aero Accessories made the decision to further expand into this market, we identified the need for us to differentiate ourselves by specializing in repair solutions for the most advanced hydraulic components. Avtron is the industry leader for hydraulic test stand manufacturing and the H355 with the Next Generation ADAS are the most advanced testing configuration currently available. This investment puts us in position to be the technological leader in advanced hydraulic repair services for the next decade and beyond.”

The new state of the art Avtron test equipment will have the ability to produce control rates and pressures up to 5,000psi ensuring Aero Accessories is well prepared to support next generation aircraft platforms such as the Boeing 787, Airbus A350 and A380.

Aero Accessories will be one of the first MRO facilities in the U.S. to own the Next Generation ADAS, the newly redesigned version of Avtron’s popular data acquisition system. By pairing the Next Generation ADAS with Avtron’s H355 test bench, Aero Accessories will add to their capability as well as improve the efficiency and quality of their current component test process.

Avtron Leads A380 Engine-Driven Pump Testing with Korean Air

We are proud to announce that Korean Airlines has successfully completed the testing of the A380 engine-driven pump (EDP) at their Busan, South Korea, component repair facility. Using a standard Avtron H502 test stand and Avtron’s Data Acquisition System (ADASTM), engineering teams from Korean Air and Avtron Aerospace worked together to complete this milestone in expanded MRO capability.

The eight engine-driven pumps on the A380 are rated at 5000psi and deliver 48 gallons of hydraulic fluid per minute, producing an 1120hp system-more than three times the hydraulic system horsepower generated on most commercial aircraft. A majority of the test bench designs currently in service at MRO facilities worldwide do not provide the pressure ratings and capability required to support newer aircraft platforms such as the A380 and B787. Korean Air selected Avtron Aerospace’s next generation of universal test systems to upgrade their component repair capabilities to support the aircraft platforms of the future.

The Korean Air project leader, Mr. Jaemun Kim, summarized this accomplishment by saying, “We are very proud to have successfully completed this strategic milestone. The deployment of our remote controlled 5000psi hydraulic test capability using the (Avtron) H502 has been a success. The technical cooperation between Korean Air and Avtron Aerospace has been excellent. In the coming months we will work together with Avtron Aerospace engineering to complete testing of the A380 electric motor driven pumps (EMDP) using the Avtron H502 test stand and data acquisition system.”

The four A380 AC electric motor-driven pumps present additional and new control requirements for component repair shops. Steven West, VP Sales & Marketing, Avtron Aerospace commented, “We are committed to supporting Korean Air as we work toward this next milestone in expanded MRO capability. We look forward to demonstrating A380 EMDP test capability at Korean Air’s world class MRO facility in the near future!”
