Custom gear and spline manufacturing is done under the guidelines of ISO 9001:2008 and Aerospace AS 9100C utilizing the newest equipment, technology and inspection, coupled with continued education and training for all our workers. Our facility is unparalleled in the world. Our gears can be found in basic general aviation aircraft systems and support equipment throughout piston powered aircraft to turbine level commercial planes and the newest military jets. Whenever extreme accuracy is required, such as for the main fuel control, engine oil pumps and weapons targeting pod in the latest fighter jets, the gear world turns to FCG for our renowned reliability and consistency. Even our competitors know where to turn when they struggle.
If the lower fringes of space on Boeing and Airbus are not high enough, you will find our gears in Space Station components where critical performance is demanded from winches to radio antenna drives. Following the success of Spirit and Opportunity on Mars, utilizing our gears in the wheel drives, we are producing gears for all the actuators on the next generation Martian explorer vehicles. This is in no small part due to our huge investment in analytical gear inspection equipment in possibly the best equipped gear laboratory in the United States.
