Stirling Dynamics partners Hanwha Aerospace to develop Vertical VX4 actuators

Stirling Dynamics, part of engineering, technology and consultancy provider Expleo, has announced a partnership with Hanwha Aerospace, to develop new technology that “will help power the future of zero-emission aviation.”

The companies say they are working on a core component for Vertical Aerospace’s VX4 and designing and manufacturing electro-mechanical actuators (EMA) for the eVTOL, key components in the vehicle’s ability to hover, take-off and land vertically, which is central to operating in urban areas.

According to the press release “The advanced EMA solution, currently in development, removes the need for hydraulic or pneumatic systems on the aircraft, helping to optimise the VX4’s performance.

“The programme represents a multi-million pound investment over a number of years and will see Stirling Dynamics and Hanwha Aerospace designing the EMA, and providing manufacturing expertise and capability.

“Stirling Dynamics and Hanwha Aerospace have worked together since 2016, and recently signed a strategic alliance agreement in 2022, in support of their EMA work together.”
