How is aircraft’s landing gear made?

Watch video below-


With the laser calibration machine, the technicians check the calibration of all the parts. The other important linkages come from the old landing system. They have to undergo a crack detection test to verify the cracks.

Metal Coating

All the parts undergo chemical dipping to increase the strength and avoid corrosion of the steel parts. After successive metal coating, the technicians clean them with water and bake it for 24 hours.

Assembly and Testing

On completion of all the above processes, the technician assembles the landing gear. He places the hydraulic seals in proper order before injecting the hydraulic system and in conclusion, the hydraulic system of the landing gear has to pass hydraulic tests for better results. It nearly takes 6-8 Months to make an Aircraft’s Landing Gear.
