Classic Aero-TV: Built On Honor -- Touring Hartzell's Prop Shop

From 2015 (YouTube Version): The Stunning Technology Behind What Keeps Much Of The Aero-World Flying

In this video we have the pleasure of meeting, J.J. Frigge, the Executive Vice President for Hartzell Propeller, and we receive a personal guided tour of the Hartzell production facility.

The Hartzell Propeller Company goes back to the early days of aviation when they were innovators in airplane propeller research and development. The spirit of those days has not been lost on the modern company.

The video takes us through the production process of Hartzell propellers that are found on some of the highest performance propeller-driven airplanes. Hartzell produces their propellers through a process they call, "Cellular Manufacturing," and Frigge gives us a look at how that's accomplished.

While this sort of manufacturing could be considered a type of production line, it's not the type of line where a product starts at a primary source and continues along in an uninterrupted process. Each production cell is designed to produce the component that then moves towards the final assembly process.

If you have ever enjoyed watching the TV program, How It's Made, this video is tailored for you.

Aero-TV is a production of the Internationally syndicated Aero-News Network. Seen worldwide by hundreds of thousands of aviators and aviation adherents, Aero-TV has produced nearly 2000 aviation and feature programs, including several hundred episodes of our thrice-weekly aviation news program, AIRBORNE, hosted by Ashley Hale.
