New Hartzell ScimitarPlus propeller blades offer a unique combination
of blended aluminum airfoil design and tip sweep, which delivers higher
all-around performance. RAM incorporates Hartzell’s ScimitarPlus
Blended Airfoil design propellers into all RAM 335-hp Cessna 340/A, 414,
and 414A RAM Series VII Upgrades.
The curved ScimitarPlus blades utilize a high lift series of airfoils at
mid-blade sections to enhance aircraft take-off and climb performance.
A combination of tip sweep and a series of airfoils at the tip sections
cause lower transonic drag, resulting in a very low noise signature. This
proprietary blend of airfoils also generates excellent cruise performance
in the thinner air at high altitudes.
Hartzell has essentially presented a generational leap in manufacturing
with its new ScimitarPlus propeller blade manufacturing process. The
new process represents a $3 million investment in technology. Overall,
the new process greatly improves the accuracy of manufacturing,
reducing blade-to-blade weight and aerodynamic variability. The result
for pilots and passengers is smoother running propellers.
The ScimitarPlus blade shank machining process establishes all the
other dimensions of the blade, controlled to .0001 inch (one-ten
thousandth of an inch), or 2.5 microns. The airfoil is then produced from the
computer- generated solid model, cut in a single pass using a seven-axis mill.
New Non-Destructive Test Cells provide more reliable testing. An
environmentally friendly semi-automated Dynamic Cloud fluorescent
penetrant inspection process ensures blades are free from even the
most minuscule surface flaws.
Hartzell is also developing the next generation of NASA GAP program
propeller designs based upon Blended Airfoil Technology, the same
technology behind Hartzell’s ScimitarPlus propeller which is offered by
RAM. Also included with RAM installations is a new one-piece spinner,
a new bulkhead, and new de-ice boots.
