Aerospace Production Tooling

With 40+ years of tooling experience, ETG has the knowledge and expertise to develop the most effective equipment for every requirement. Our scope of facilities provides the capacity for a wide spectrum of tooling assembly, from small jigs and fixtures to large tooling for aero structures. Previously, we have designed, assembled and inspected tooling for a range of aviation projects, from aircraft noses to aero engines.

ETG also provide bespoke tooling and assembly aids/fixtures to suit small, medium and large batch assembly.

Materials Handling

Our expertise in materials handling is vast. In particular, we specialise in providing materials handling systems, including all aspects of conveyor systems and lifters. The ETG Group is committed to developing high-quality, robust systems that are effective, efficient and match the client’s specification. ETG have worked with a multitude of material types, shapes, sizes and weights, which puts us in a strong position for any projects requiring materials handling, engine manipulation or any materials-handling systems.


Aerospace Flow Lines

ETG integrates assembly flow lines, from design to turnkey project delivery, for aircraft aerostructures and aerospace equipment.

We manage assembly station development and integration in the aerospace industry environment through analysis, design and production optimisation processes, using lean manufacturing principles, flow automation as well as ergonomic jigs and tools.

As your project integrator, we manage the supply chain to deliver specific innovative solutions. They include electrical or hydraulic lifting devices for assembly by using laser trackers, handling tools, mechanical gantries, multi-axis robots, drilling and riveting tools, access platforms and transportation tools, including automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

ETG ensure productivity improvement and better production cycles while preserving safety and investment cost optimisation. Every opportunity is explored to maximise efficiencies in careful handling and manipulation.
