new look at the MS28042 & ARINC 408 standards.
Mounts Inc. has been building and selling high quality aircraft
instrument mounting clamps for 70 years. (See
company history page) Our engineers have designed the majority of
avionics mounts in use today. While our old avionics clamp designs may have been considered adequate in
the past, today's high powered avionics demand excellent grounding,
better holding power, less chance of failure, and the ability to
meet the size requirements of the NASM28042 & ARINC 408
standards. Our new designs (Patent
incorporate all of those features into our new products, while
maintaining a low cost.
of the major advantages of our new clamp designs are:
new design eliminates the weak spot of its predecessors by removing the rivets from the closing
mechanism. This assures that all of the torque applied in tighten this
clamp, goes to securing the instrument. The
advanced closing mechanism in our new design operates on “slides” that are machined into
the clamp body, and closing mechanism. This eliminates the problems
associated with other clamp designs, where all of the torque applied to close
the mount, is transferred through rivets that have a tendency to fail.
Our new avionics clamps do not require any heat treatment processes
which results in less cost, shorter lead times, and a
"greener" product. The material starts as 6061-T6 and
stays at 6061-T6 through out the whole manufacturing process. There is no
annealing or heat treating. Therefore the need to
send parts all over the country to meet a customer's "approved
processing sources" is eliminated.
new design meets all dimensional requirements of the NASM28042 (Formerly
MS28042) and the ARINC 408A standards. This is where most of our competitor's products
fail, they simply do not meet the dimensional requirements of the standards.
With our product, there is no need for Material Deviation Requests to
allow for the use of "out of tolerance" product.
