Aerospace engine skates
Moving Aerospace engines was a project undertaken with UTC in 2013. UTC asked Tractive Power to provide a way to move engines from the factory entrance to the required location within the factory. A big driver for this was to remove the requirement of huge forklift trucks operating in pedestrian areas and safeguarding employees within the facility. Tractive Power designed and manufactured this custom made skate system to mount the engine trolley's on. So the mounting of the engines takes place outside the production area and the Tractive unit tows the engine safely to the work areas.
