Eurodrone gets Liebherr landing gear
Under a contract between the two, Liebherr will develop and manufacture the main and nose landing gear for the drone, including actuation, steering and electronic controls, and the electric-motor driven pump (EMP).
The Eurodrone features a hydraulic power supply that is entirely electrically driven and has Liebherr's EMP solution at its core.
The solution can be installed closer to single consumers than conventional engine-driven pumps offering efficiency, weight, and noise benefits.
