Precision Engineering for Submarine Applications

Client: Defence Industry

Project: Manufacture of Torque Adaptor Assemblies for Submarine Use

Overview

Electropak Ltd, a leading provider of precision engineering solutions, was tasked with the manufacture of Torque Adaptor Assemblies for a high-stakes application within the Defence industry. These assemblies are critical components used on submarines, where reliability and precision are paramount.

Project Details

Objective: To produce high-quality Torque Adaptor Assemblies that meet stringent defence standards and perform flawlessly in challenging submarine environments.

Materials and Components:

  1. Torque Adaptor Plate:
    • Material: 316 Stainless Steel
    • Details: The torque adaptor plate was meticulously machined from 316 stainless steel, known for its excellent corrosion resistance and durability. This choice of material ensures that the component can withstand the harsh marine environment and the pressures associated with submarine operations.
    • Customisation: Clear, easy-to-read instructions for use were engraved directly onto the plate, providing essential guidance to operators and ensuring proper usage under any conditions.
  2. Latch Arm:
    • Material: Phosphor Bronze
    • Details: The latch arm was crafted from phosphor bronze, a material renowned for its strength, toughness, and resistance to fatigue. This makes it ideal for high-stress applications.
    • Assembly: The latch arm was securely riveted to the torque adaptor plate, ensuring a robust and reliable connection.
