Examples of our work

Sector Solution: Aerospace

Brinksway has manufactured A220 (formerly Bombardier C Series) Canoe and Barrel jigs and installed them at a purpose-built facility in Morocco. We manufactured the assembly jigs in-house with all fabrications, machining and assembly carried out under one roof at our site in Audenshaw, Manchester. Assembly tooling, jigs and test still remain a core part of our business.

Brinksway has machined various fabricated parts for tactical military bridges, from large fabrications to smaller turned items.

Sector Solution: Energy

We have manufactured and repaired various steam chests, valves, spindles and bushes for the steam turbine industry, often provided on a quick turnaround as usually these are required for a breakdown situation.

Sector Solution: Nuclear

Brinksway manufactured a lifting beam with park stand/trolley for the nuclear industry. A manual adjustment enables the operator to set the beam to the desired size to suit the differently sized packages requiring lifting and moving from pick-up to drop-off location.

Sector Solution: Space

Long Reach Tool for satellite positioning – a specialist assembly positioned on the launch pad to insert vital parts into the satellite body immediately prior to launch. We fabricated the aluminium base and engineered delicate components including nylon, stainless steel and specialist-grade material for precision linear bearings.

Sector Solution: Transportation

We manufactured and designed a nitrogen purged engine container with an internal steel-fabricated skeleton in a fibreglass skin, with hydraulically operated doors and air-tight seal to allow safe transport of engines in a controlled environment. Even after a long storage period, the containers keep the engines free from contamination, meaning that minimal cleaning before use is required.
