Dual-purpose engine stand

  • 16-Apr-2014 02:55 EDT

Champion GSE has developed a dual-purpose stand for both the -1B and -2B GEnx engine platforms from GE. Features of the Stronghold stand were designed to increase personnel safety, usability, and function. These features include hydraulic, automated casters and shock isolation mount; onboard storage for all tools and parts; industrial nonslip material coating to replace no-skid strips; and improved rigidity. Champion also brought new machining capabilities in-house to manufacture affiliated ground support equipment products, while still meeting demanding lead times and stringent customer qualifications.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
