Eaton’s Reliable Products and Customer Support Help Boeing Deliver the 1,000th 777 Jetliner to Emirates
“As a key supplier for the 777 program, Eaton joins Boeing in celebrating the achievement of the 1,000th delivery milestone,” said Geoff Reed, Eaton’s account director for Boeing. “Eaton products have played important roles in 777 systems ever since the first airplane was delivered in 1995, contributing to the platform’s outstanding efficiency and dispatch reliability of greater than 99 percent.”
Eaton products on the 777 generate, convey and control power and are used in major sub-systems throughout the airplane, including fuel, hydraulic and propulsion systems. Eaton content also provides actuation in flight controls trim and utility applications, and cargo and passenger door applications in hydraulic, pneumatic and electric power systems.
In an agreement announced in 2011, Emirates chose Eaton to provide engine-driven pumps and AC motorpumps for a new order of 777s, in addition to support services for the same units installed on the airline’s current 777 fleet. Eaton is the exclusive provider of supplier-furnished engine-driven pumps and AC motorpumps for all of Emirate’s Boeing fleets.
Additional Eaton content on the 777 includes inline motors, brake metering valves, stabilizer trim motors, ram air turbine pumps, main engine fuel pumps, environmentally sealed power relays, quantitative debris monitoring systems, rudder trim switches, a vast array of pressure, altitude and differential-pressure switches, emergency passenger door actuators and environmental control system door actuators.
