AIS Vanguard and the Aerospace Industry

The Aerospace industry requires specialist equipment and the uppermost excellence when it comes to engineering and industrial services. Over the last 40 years, we have gained first-hand knowledge and experience in helping the aerospace industry.

Our Aerospace Industry Commitment

Our mechanical services help businesses across the aerospace industry in a variety of ways, ranging from the movement of single pieces of machinery, machinery maintenance, dismantling, relocation or a complete reinstallation. We also provide complete replacements to manufacturing equipment, thanks to our lifting equipment.

Lifting in small, potentially problematic areas including confined spaces or limited access areas, restricted floor bearings and overhead obstructions is no problem for our equipment or team. Our specialist equipment allows the aerospace project solution to be built around your location and problem, so the project continues without delay.

What we did for Spirit Aerospace

Our team successfully completed a gantry crane lift and relocation for Spirit Aerospace.

The Airbus hanger contained two 71-meter span cranes, with the west crane being in a much better condition of the two. Spirit requested the east crane be removed completed to allow the west crane to move along the gantry into the area where the east crane operated. This is where the majority of their assembly works take place on a new large order that had been secured.

After the west crane had been removed into its new position, the east crane needed to be remounted onto the rails so it can be tested prior to use and then re-commissioned for use. This was completed all within a time frame of just four days.
