Shaft Generator Shaft Assembly
AmTech manufactures this shaft assembly for use in the starter generator of an aircraft.
The purpose of a starter generator is to crank the aircraft engine or APU system up to a specified RPM to start the aircraft.
Basically, a starter generator rotates the turbine engine fast enough so the fuel can be ignited during start up; it then takes over as a generator providing DC power to the electrical system after start.
