Woodward is an industry leader in design and development of electric motors and related accessory devices for aerospace and defense motion-control applications. Our areas of motor expertise include AC Motors, Brushless DC Motors, DC Brush Motors, and Stepper Motors along with accessory devices including Brakes, Clutches, Tachometers & Alternators, and Eddy-Current Dampers. Woodward housed motors can also be supplied directly mated to our own gearheads (as a powerdrive unit) or with a leadscrew output as needed to deliver greater torque or force to the payload.
Woodward provides complete actuation system design, analysis, and testing across a wide range of turbine engine applications: engine start, variable geometry, thermal management, turbine clearance control, engine operability, and compressor bleed applications. Our systems-level approach allows for optimized engine performance, improved reliability, and significantly reduced costs compared to sourcing individual line-replaceable units (LRUs). World-class components result from the enhancement of high-pedigree designs with technology innovations. Our state-of-the-art testing facility validates the fully optimized suite of hardware for flawless entry into service (EIS).
