EngineStands24 stocks a variety of jet engine support equipment. The air/road shipping frame for the V2500 engine is generally identified as a “Multi-Purpose Engine Cradle”. The complete assembly comprises of an engine support cradle for the V2500 engine, which can ensure safety and engine support at four positions. 2 front and 2 rear positions conforms to IAE specification IAE6R18897 and will handle the basic engine, partial QEC, fully demountable engine including EBU, air inlet, nozzle, mixer, and aircraft engine mounts.
The cradle also complies with SAE ARP1840 and ISO 11241 General Standards for Aircraft engine Transportation Devices, and the relevant Health & Safety requirements of the machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The jet engine cradle is mountable/dismountable from a 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 transporter 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 Engine Support Cradle – FB70010-1V250 structure comprises four attachment points used for engine support on the cradle, two at the front and two at the rear. The cradle is provided with fork truck lifting facilities from either side, which can only be used when the cradle is separated from the transporter, and not when the cradle and engine are secured on the mobile transporter frame.
The engine cradle possesses four bootstrapping and lifting lugs positioned at 1624mm longitudinal centres, and 1250mm transverse centres equally spaced about the jet engine centre line. These lifting positions are used for raising and lowering the engine and cradle on and off the transporter frame, and for engine changes on the wing. The forward lugs have a SWL of 2500 daN each, and the rear lugs have a SWL of 2500 daN each in accordance with Airbus engine change bootstrap. In addition eight air ties down eyes are provided on the front fork channel and on the rear end and each side member for securing purposes during air transportation.
The vertical aft support assembly can be folded down and stowed horizontally on the engine cradle when there is no aircraft engine in position. There is also a stowage engine support when the arms are in the vertical position for engine change, to hold the arms in a convenient position prior to installation on the jet engine.
A pair of struts acts as steadying members for the main uprights containing the forward engine support. These are both removable, but must be installed during transportation and shipping. The struts ensure a rigid assembly when the cradle is loaded with an engine. These struts are only removed when loading an engine onto the cradle from the aircraft wing. Each strut is secured to the cradle by means of a pin and locking pin assemblies, and must be replaced once the engine is in place.
