Aircraft Engine Inlet Manipulator
Lifting fixture, powered shaft gripper with 360° rotation along axis, powered 90° knuckle, tilt-up safety switch
100 lb [45 kg] turbine engine inlets
During the manufacturing of turbine engine inlets, the parts go through several machining, inspection, and coating steps. Alum-a-Lift created a universal adaptor system that makes managing the large diameter parts easier, allowing a single operator to do what used to require 4-5 people.
