The RJD Manufacturing Development Engineers have been nominated for a coveted BAE Systems Chairman’s Award.
Over the years RJD have worked closely with TEAMS from across BAE Systems to improve safety and productivity across a range of aircraft assembly and production..
When we were approached to help improve the operating of a positioning jig on the Hawk Jet Line, our development engineers got to work straight away.
The JIG was operated by a HEAVY IMPACT WRENCH that caused high Vibration and Noise levels, as well as requiring the operator to reach out over a ledge to operate the jig.
Our DESIGN ENGINEERS developed a bespoke drive unit that is fixed permanently to the jig and is now operated via a PNEUMATIC PENDANT CONTROL.
The completed drive has massively improved operator COMFORT and SAFETY whilst reducing VIBRATION and NOISE.
