S.A.F.E. Structure Designs is pleased announce they have delivered 7 custom cowling racks for the scheduled preventive maintenance inspections of the AH64 to the US Army, Fort Hood. The custom designed racks are part of the ongoing US Army / S.A.F.E. project to redesign the maintenance hangar to be more ergonomic and efficient. The custom racks allow each removed part to have a specific storage location during maintenance. These locations are easily accessed based on the size and weight of each part. The custom racks increase the efficiency of crew and provide secure organization to ensure a safe and effective inspection.
S.A.F.E. has additional custom maintenance equipment currently in production for the US Army AH64 fleet. The equipment will be delivered over the next few months. The new maintenance equipment and unique cowling racks along with S.A.F.E custom AH64 maintenance stands provide the US Army with a new ergonomic facility in the support of the AH64 helicopter.
“We are proud to work side by side with the US Army, Fort Hood on this project” stated Johnny Buscema, S.A.F.E. CEO. “The goal of the US Army is to increase safety and efficiency through ergonomic tooling. That is our goal on every project we undertake. We work closely with all our customers to develop the perfect safe solution.”
S.A.F.E. will be hosting a virtual Maintenance Safety Symposium on September 23. Information and registration is available on their website. The Symposium will provide safety information, resources, solutions and networking opportunities for all helicopter mechanics.
