Never underestimate the importance of critical parts for helicopters. One of those crucial parts is the tail rotor hub. Canton Drop Forge has special expertise in forging and supplying rotor parts for helicopters, like the tail rotor hub for the Apache helicopter.

The tail rotor counters the torque effect created by the main rotor. Without them the helicopter would spin out of control. A tail rotor hub works to counter the rotation of the main rotor hub and prevents the helicopter from losing orientation. It also rotates small wings called blades. These blades vary in pitch as a way to differentiate the amount of thrust they produce. With this in mind, a pilot can use the tail rotor blade as a rudder for steering by varying the pitch of its blades.
The tail rotor and the systems that provide power and control for it are considered critically important for safe flight. As with many parts on a helicopter, the tail rotor, its transmission, and many parts in the drive system are often life-limited, meaning they are arbitrarily replaced after a certain number of flight hours, regardless of condition.
As with all forms of aerospace, each part affects the others. Dealing with a faulty tail rotor hub puts safety and flight stability at a major risk. The solution is simple: a top-quality forged helicopter tail rotor hub created with you in mind.
Besides the tail rotor hub for the Apache, Canton Drop Forge also supplies the pitch-shaft and rotor hub for the Chinook helicopter.
