The all-new Engine Access Stand has been designed to access the top of the engine under the cowl. In use at Air Canada, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Boeing on both Rolls Royce and GE engines, the Engine Access Stand provides a safe working solution to a difficult area on the aircraft to reach. Tested and operational on most wide and narrow body aircraft, the Engine Access Stand is often used to access difficult-to-reach areas (such as above the wing).
The evolution of the Engine Access Stand has resulted in an improved design. Functionality improvements include outboard engines and pylon access (A380, A340 and B747-8) as well as avionics and aft- fuselage access points. The DF071554-06S is available without the integrated scissor base as seen in our all-new Aircraft Maintenance Stands 6X (AMS-6X) Model. In use at multiple operators and aircraft manufacturers alike, the unit has flexibility for use on all Boeing wide body aircraft as well as the B757. The design also allows for full use on Airbus wide body aircraft as well as the A320 family.
The unit is also designed to safely access the same points outside of the cowling, specifically forward and aft pylon service points, as well as hard to reach refuel panels.
The hydraulic pitch and height adjustment allow for the diverse angle and height variables frequently encountered when servicing many areas on aircraft. The Stand contains extensive use of aluminum construction for easy movement and corrosion- resistant powder coat finish for longevity.
The Engine Access Stand contains a variety of safety features for maintenance workers as well as for the aircraft itself. ATACS bumper pads as well as Rubber D bumper pads on the aircraft interface surfaces protect the aircraft while in use. The Stand contains anti-fatigue and anti-slip ladder rungs as well as fail-safe hydraulic cylinder locks for height and pitch, ensuring worker safety during use. All castors contain both brake and swivel locks. The Engine Access Stand has several fall-restraint anchor points on the upper ladder.
For increased safety and ease of mobility, the stand comes standard equipped with 4 corner leveling jacks, fold away tow bars and lift truck fork pockets.
The stand is designed and tested in accordance with ANSI-ASC A14.7 and BS EN 131.7 including CE Certification.
