At our Lloyds Beal depot in Caerphilly, we specialise in the manufacture of products for the aviation Industry, including custom made lifting & jacking equipment to customer specific requirements.
Working in conjunction with a major MRO facility in the UK, we were tasked with manufacturing a complete set of load cell jacks enabling the stress jacking of a 747-400 aircraft. This method allows a number of repairs to be carried out at any one time, thus keeping the downtime to an absolute minimum – a must in the aviation industry.
SWL set out to fully understand the needs of the customer and worked closely with the engineers and users to ensure the solution met all of their requirements. Those requirements included design, manufacture, test and the creation of a robust maintenance regime, which included annual calibration traceable to National Standards, therefore creating a complete unrivalled service.
SWL worked to extremely strict time and budget constraints and effectively managed the project from start to finish on time and within the set budget. Subsequently SWL have manufactured a second set of load cells and also undertake other beneficial works for the same customer due to their great success.
We carry out Testing, Calibration and repairs, and can help with all your Statutory LOLER and PUWER requirements.
