Lug Removal Tool

RJD LUG REMOVAL TOOL

THE CHALLENGE

When AIRCRAFT WINGS are being manufactured a number of high resistant carry lugs are machined onto them so they can be moved and positioned using lifting gear. Once assembly is complete these lugs are redundant and need to be removed. Previously this was done by hand. Not only is this a lengthy process, there is a high risk of damaging the wing

THE OUTCOME

The RJD Lug Removal Tool, designed and manufactured to:

  • Cut as close to the WING as possible whilst ensuring no blade slip
  • Consistently better finish every time
  • Significant reduction in production time
  • Competitively priced

Screw Feed Drilling

THE CHALLENGE

Aircraft manufacturing demands high PRECISION drilling, often in difficult or restricted spaces. Our client required a high precision drilling and back spot facing tool.

THE OUTCOME

The RJD SCREW FEED DRILL features:

  • Accurate to a thousandth of an inch
  • Rotary screw feed design
  • Optional ABS Digimatic Scale 
  • Compact design from just 250mm in length

POSITIONING JIG PENDENT CONTROL & DRIVE

THE CHALLENGE

We were approached to help improve the operating of a positioning jig on the Hawk Jet Line.

THE OUTCOME

Positioning Jig drive & pendent control features:
