Engine test stand. Aircraft tools: cradle transporter stand – FB70010-2V250, FB70010-2V250ASH

Aviation tools such as the universal low profile transportation/shipping stand is designed for supporting and conveying aircraft engines of different types both within aircraft maintenance areas and transportation by road, sea and air. Generally covers the specification IAE6R18897, CFMI – PITF55, SAE ARP1840 and ISO 11241 General Standards for Aircraft Engine Transportation Devices. FB70010-2V250ASH also complies with the relevant Health & Safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

The complete assembly comprises of a cradle transporter stand – FB70010-2V250, FB70010-2V250ASH. The engine cradle is mountable/dismountable from the transporter stand and normally secured during transport at four positions on the transporter stand by means of locking pins.

The aircraft engine on the cradle can be protected from damage by means of an optional bumper bar assembly at each end of the stand. The transporter stand is supplied with castor wheels as standard. 

A transporter stand with ‘Ackerman’ type steering system is available as an alternative to the castor wheels. The transportation/shipping stand can accommodate Frank Brown & Son design support cradles for the following engines: IAE V2500, CFM56-3, CFM56-5A, CFM56-5B, CFM56-7.

The transporter stand accepts and secures the engine and support cradle to enable mobility and satisfactory transportation by land or air. This aircraft tool is supported by the transverse cross box members, which rest on eight, (four per side) shock absorber pads. Each cross box member has the location attachments. This method of securing ensures that any vibration or shock impact load imparted to the transporter stand is dampened prior to reaching the cradle and engine.

The cradle is secured to the transporter stand with four pins and locking pins, via holes in each. The transporter stand is equipped with standard spring loaded castor wheels at each corner, or can be supplied with the alternative ‘Ackerman’ type steering systems each end. The wheels can be raised to allow the transporter stand to sit directly on the ground.

Aviation tool the transporter stand can be fitted with two optional & extra ‘bumper’ bars pinned to it, one at each end, which protect the engine and cradle from being struck externally. At the ‘forward’ end of the standard castor equipped transporter, a tow bar is attached via locking pins to enable mechanised ‘tug’ transport to be attached. The tow bar can be dismantled and folded up for easy storage, at the front end, for despatch and shipping.

During the aircraft maintenance or in other cases if needed the transporter stand can be raised from the floor by means of a fork lift truck, locating in the fixed locations at 1587.5 mm centres. This arrangement facilitates the raising and lowering of each castor or wheel unit. Access can be obtained from either side of the unit. These positions are marked FORK LIFT and are the only positions where it is safe to lift the stand with a fork lift truck. This is a condition of safe use of the stand and must be performed carefully to avoid any possibility of damage or accidents.

It is important to note: in order to ensure efficient aircraft maintenance and safety it is important to have at least two operators in attendance during this operation.
