Load Pins for Aerospace Application Despatched

12th Oct 2016

We have just despatched 6 sets of load pins with handheld displays, all neatly packed in a transit case. These kits will be used in a specially designed assembly for supporting the engine of A400M military transport aircraft while a gearbox change is carried out. Two load pins are attached to vertical turnbuckles and register the engine weight, which can then be balanced between the two pins to ensure even weight distribution on the support assembly. The other two load pins are attached to lateral turnbuckles, which, whilst registering some of the engine weight, are also used via the turnbuckles to apply a pre-load to support the engine when the gearbox is removed.
