Application Description

In the aviation  industry, HERED provides various types of aviation  lifts, including scissor lifts and boom lifts suitable for the aviation industry.

In the aviation industry, aerial work platforms (AWPs) are essential for various maintenance, repair, and inspection tasks on aircraft. The types of AWPs used are specialized to meet the unique requirements of working on aircraft, which include precision, stability, and the ability to navigate around the specific contours and sensitive areas of airplanes. Here are the specific usage scenarios and the types of AWPs typically used:

Aviation Aerial Work Platforms

Aircraft Maintenance and Repair: For general maintenance and repair tasks on aircraft, such as engine work, body repairs, or wing inspections, specialized AWPs like aircraft maintenance stands are used. These stands are designed to fit closely around the aircraft's body, providing safe and stable access to all parts of the plane.

Fueling and Servicing Aircraft: Mobile stair trucks or service platforms are often used for fueling, cleaning, or servicing aircraft. These platforms are adjustable and can be moved easily around the airport tarmac, providing access to various parts of the aircraft.

Painting and Exterior Work: For tasks like painting or applying decals to aircraft exteriors, large boom lifts or specialized scaffolding systems are used. These AWPs provide the extensive reach and stability needed to cover the large surface areas of aircraft.

Loading and Unloading Cargo Aircraft: In the cargo handling area, scissor lifts or specialized cargo loaders are used to load and unload cargo from aircraft. These platforms are designed to reach the height of the cargo bay and can handle heavy loads.

Inspection and Quality Control: For detailed inspections and quality control, portable access platforms and ladders are utilized. These allow technicians to closely examine various parts of the aircraft, including the undercarriage, wings, and tail.

Airport Facility Maintenance: For maintenance tasks in airport facilities, such as changing lights in hangars or repairing fixtures, electric scissor lifts or boom lifts are used. These AWPs are suitable for indoor use as they are quieter and do not emit fumes.

Emergency Aircraft Access: In emergency situations, such as for rapid response repairs or rescue operations, specialized rapid-deploy AWPs are used. These platforms are designed for quick setup and safe use in critical situations.

Each type of AWP used in aviation maintenance and servicing is carefully selected for its ability to safely and efficiently perform tasks at height, considering the specific requirements of working on and around aircraft, such as precision, stability, and adaptability to the aircraft's design.
