UNIVERSAL AIRCRAFT UNDERBODY SUPPORT CRADLES

ENMARES Universal Underbody Support Cradle (E-USC) was designed and manufactured to carry fuselages of different aircraft models during structural repair operations that require underbody support at certain frame stations for safety reasons. The steel main body of E-USC is produced as two different types having different heights. Cradles made of wooden or laminated marine quality plywood are equipped with a soft material (rubber or felt) over its aircraft contact surface and mounted on these steel bodies. These blocks can be changed for the required highest conformity to the body sections or different aircraft types. Its special load-carrying screws and nuts allow a safe and powerful operation. Having stated this universal design approach, E-USC can be used for a wide range of bodies. Main steel structure and cradle blocks can be manufactured with CNC precision upon the repair information given by customers that shows the stations through the aircraft that must be supported.
