DURACARB® Platform History
Lock Ring Wheel and Carbon Brake for Lockheed Martin C-130
A prime example of the benefits our wheel and brake technologies bring to operators is the Lockheed Martin C-130. Our wheel and brake retrofit for the C-130 includes DURACARB® carbon disk technology, providing extended wear life, low vibration, and improved strength for years of reduced maintenance operation. In addition, Our two-piece aluminum lock ring wheel provides easier overhaul maintenance as well as reduced service and labor requirements. This patented lock ring design eliminates the need for tie bolts, providing significant time and cost savings.
