The S&S Problem-Solving Approach

S&S Numerical Control places a strong emphasis on supporting the entire product line by constantly making it better, more reliable, and more efficient. One of the best ways to support a product is to make sure it does not develop problems in the first place, using well thought-out design and manufacturing techniques.


S&S Integrated Design Capability

S&S offers integrated-design capabilities intended to eliminate many of the complexities involved in commercial aircraft seating applications. Parts that interact directly with the video arm can be incorporated into the S&S solution, thereby reducing your engineering workload and ensuring a perfect fit at installation.


Positioning Arms for Tablet PCs

Tablet PCs used as IFE devices require a way to position the display, so that the passenger does not have to manipulate it manually during the flight. S&S solutions for tablet PCs are custom-designed for the seat environment with portable/detachable configurations as well as fully integrated into the seating envelope.
