Power Take-off Shaft for LIGHT COMBAT AIRCRAFT-TEJAS

Catalog Info

The Flexible power take-off (PTO) shaft designed and developed by CVRDE, transmits the drive between engine gearbox and Accessory gearbox of Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) - Tejas. the name "flexible PTO Shaft"is derived from the fact that the shaft is able to accommodate large misalignment, which is generally prohibited in the drive line of any transmission system. Since the PTO shaft connects Engine mounted gearbox and Aircraft mounted gearbox, the structural flexure of the fuselage due to the aircraft dynamics and thermal growth of the gas turbine engine operating 1700 degree C to 2000 degree C have to be accommodated by the PTO shaft during flight conditions.
