About Artus

Advanced electrical solutions for aerospace and defense

Meggitt’s Artus facility designs and manufactures a complete range of electrical motion and power solutions.

From electromechanical actuators and position sensors, to power converters and fully integrated servo systems, we provide solutions customised to meet your specific requirements.

More electric aircraft demand more power and more sophisticated electronics. Our engineers specialise in finding innovative solutions for your electrical power network. Talk to us about your main propulsion system, utilities or electric power generation, conversion and storage.

Since 1948, we have specialised in motors, power electronics and sensors for extreme environments. For example, we supply lightweight titanium actuators for naval helicopter blade folding systems — as well as working under severe vibration these electrical products also have to withstand extreme temperature cycles and salt corrosion.

Our customers trust us to provide:

  • reliable, innovative solutions
  • customised designs
  • comprehensive through-life support
