Ground support equipment: engine stand and transportation stand

Ground support equipment includes all equipment on the ground such as tools, mobile or fixed devices to inspect, test, adjust, calibrate, measure, repair or overhaul the vehicle. A variety of ground support equipment includes tow bar, test stand, transportation stand, engine stand and tooling equipment.

An engine stand is a one of aircraft tools commonly used to repair large heavy gasoline or diesel engines. It uses a heavy cantilevered support structure to hold the engine in midair so that the mechanic has access to any exposed surface of the engine. National and international standards have been developed to standardize the safety and performance requirements for engine stand and other lifting devices.

EngineStands24 offers engine stand for sale on e-platform providing an easy and fast solution for Airlines, MROs and other engine asset owners. EngineStands24 offer variety of engine stand for sale, certified bases and cradles for the most common engine types such as CFM56-3; CFM56-5A/5B; CFM56-7B and IAEV2500. The product portfolio is continuously expanding. The service is tailored for AOG support, long term lease or outright purchase. The engine stands are located in Magnetic MRO´s maintenance facilities in Tallinn, Estonia; warehouses in Shannon, Ireland and other European locations and are available 24/7.

The transporter stand accepts and secures the engine and support cradle to enable mobility and satisfactory transportation by land or air. The engine support cradle 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 bolts 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.

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.

The transporter stand and other aviation tools can be factory finished to customer requirements. Normal finish is ‘Skydrol’ Resistant Gloss Paint. Towing speed of the stand during workshop & aircraft maintenance ground handling is limited to a maximum of 3 m.p.h. (5 km/h), over a hard, flat and level surface. This is a safety requirement and must always be adhered to. Failure to do so could result in an accident and or damage to the equipment and engine.
