Powered “U” shaped opening with hinged fold up sections for jet engine assembly.
A major manufacturer of airplane engines was in need of a material handling solution that would help them meet the demands of high-volume production while ensuring employee safety. They knew the workers at their facility needed a flexible solution that would allow them to adjust the stand to easily access the different size jet engines they would be working on.
Autoquip created a mobile work stand with power-operated retractable circular section to move and position the engines in place for assembly work. The circular section is also removable, so that workers can adjust the width of the sections to accommodate the varying size engines and diameters. Additional features include articulating stairs to access the work stand at any elevation.
