Title: AIRCRAFT ENGINE INSTALLATION/REMOVAL AND TRANSFER DEVICE
Abstract:
Disclosed is an aircraft engine installation/removal and transfer device (20) in the form of a carriage (100) comprising, on the one hand, a chassis (110) mounted on castor wheels (111, 112, 113, 114) and, on the other hand, a cradle (150) for receiving said engine (20); said device comprises pneumatic and/or hydraulic actuators (160) arranged as the interface between the chassis (110) and the cradle (150) and capable, on the one hand, of lifting the cradle relative to the frame and, on the other hand, of damping shocks and/or vibrations, said actuators making it possible to lift the cradle into a first, lifting position necessary for the installation/removal of the engine, and then to hold it in a second, load-bearing resting position to dampen vibrations and/or shocks to the engine-cradle assembly relative to the frame.
