Aircraft Ground Support Equipment Columbus

Ohio can, rightly, boast as being a top state for aviation-related manufacturing. Some of the most renowned aerospace and aviation companies are located right in Columbus which offers a wealth of aviation-related products and services – from the fabrication of aircraft and aerospace components to full-service aircraft fleets that cater to niche clients. The aircraft and aerospace industry is deeply embedded in Columbus and a host of other cities throughout the state.

For product-based aircraft/aviation-related businesses, there are a few critical objectives that must be met to maintain a competitive edge over one’s competition: 1) ensure lead times are maximally reduced 2) keep production optimized 3) offer unsurpassed on-time delivery and 4) ensure Columbus customers remain 100% happy. At Morgan Aero, we are here to help your Columbus aircraft facility reach those all-important goals.

Morgan Aero offers almost 6 decades of history with the fabrication of aircraft ground support equipment which covers the gamut from worm-drive hoists and lever hoists to hand-chain hoists and sling lifting systems. Our aircraft ground support products help aircraft establishments, around the world, enhance their production processes by becoming far more efficient and, just as importantly, far safer.

Since 1964, Morgan Aero has manufactured and supplied vital ground support equipment for the aircraft and aerospace industries – locally, nationally, and globally. When jet engines, landing gear, cargo doors, and other heavy components must be lifted, lowered, or maneuvered in any way in any direction, our hoists and lift systems ensure exact, precise movement control during every moment of operation.

It’s Not the Load That Matters – It’s the Way It’s Carried

Whether aircraft parts must be replaced, repaired, maintained, or manufactured, Morgan Aero’s aircraft ground support equipment turns heavy-lift challenges into heavy-lift solutions.  Our aircraft ground-support equipment includes:

Aerosafe worm-drive hoists – One thousand of our Aerosafe hoists are used within manufacturing and maintenance installations, of all types – from aircraft and aerospace facilities to general manufacturing arenas.  Our Aerosafe worm-drive hoists are offered as manual or pneumatic models.

We manufacture the Aerosafe worm-drive hoists for Boeing and, virtually, all major airlines worldwide who utilize these hoists for engine and landing gear installation and removal.  When heavy components for Boeing and Airbus must be handled with exacting care, these aviation enterprises trust the Morgan Aero name for their aircraft ground-support needs.

Lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a distinct advantage for Columbus aircraft installations.  Air-cooled means heavy-lifting can proceed, uninterrupted, with an unlimited number of motor starts.  Pneumatic chain hoists lift heavy aircraft loads faster and more efficiently than electric chain hoist options.

Morgan Aero’s lever hoists and hand-chain hoists fulfill strict Boeing Hoist Specifications including:

  • M-7360-99-2574
  • M-7360-99-2714
  • M-MEAP-02-13789
  • 1-157306941-1
  • MIL-H-904J
  • appendix ‘A’ and CE certification standards

Additionally, Morgan Aero developed the JM and JM-AP series of lever hoists for the Boeing 737 Advanced Generation Aircraft.  We manufacture the APU hoist – the AP6108 chain-drive hoist unit – used by the USAF as well as major airlines across the globe.  Columbus aircraft installations will not find a higher caliber APU hoist, of this type, anywhere else on the world market!

Sling lifting systems – Our aircraft and aerospace lifts are utilized for component manufacturing, sub-assembly, final assembly, and testing.  Aircraft-affiliated arenas, also, utilize our sling lifting systems for airline and military aircraft maintenance, repair, inspections, the lifting of disabled aircraft, and more.

The requirements for hoisting equipment as part of aircraft ground support are very strict regarding function, operability, and safety.  Our aircraft ground support equipment helps to ensure your Columbus-based business maintains safety compliances, boosts productivity, and reduces lead-time – inefficiencies, of which, can be resource-intensive and time-intensive to resolve.   Morgan Aero’s product quality and dependability are world renowned and world trusted.
