Wing-Top Sander

Product From Temple Allen Industries

Working closely with our European launch customer, Temple Allen has developed a pneumatic low-vibration sanding tool for wing-top sanding operations. An advanced prototype, shown here, incorporates ergonomic handles, a dual-inline sanding head, a vibration-absorbing boom, and an optional fluid delivery system. Production systems will offer, like our EMMA systems, an interchangeable selection of end effectors to accommodate different pad sizes and orbits for task-specific requirements; an integrated dust collection system which turns on with the sander and routes particulate to HEPA-rated 3M Clean Sanding Filter Bags. Temple Allen's new Wing-Top Sander is patent pending, and has been CE-certified for the European market. For more information visit

Helicopter Blade Prep

Product From Temple Allen Industries

During MRO, helicopter blades are a challenge to sand because the paint thickness on rotor blades varies along the surface (especially considering the frequency of field repairs); because the substrate (and copper grid/ lightning protection) is susceptible to damage, and because the topcoat (particularly CARC paint used in some military applications) is hard enough to survive extreme operating conditions. Temple Allen’s solution focuses on finish quality (consistent scratch depth/pattern) and part protection - by holding the sander flat while applying even pressure to the workpiece, operators are able to dial in a desired contact force and thereby establish a predictable material removal rate which, among many advantages, allows different operators to generate the same high-quality results.
