During the year 2003 Aernnova decided to invest in automated machines procuring and installing a Broetje automatic machine (known in Aernnova as CIMPA) in Aernnova Berantevilla facility in order to perform operations such as drilling, countersinking or riveting in aircraft structures during its assembly. Due to the high load of work at that time in Aernnova mainly due to work packages from Embraer and Sikorsky, a solution was needed in order to assemble all the products required by our customer and deliver them on properly in terms of time and good quality. Several ideas came to our engineering team always having in mind the idea of reducing time being more competitive specially in repetitive operations and at the same time keeping good quality. Finally after a depth search, the option selected was an automated machine from Broetje that after some adjustments and customizations regarding our purposes could provide us the best solution.

This paper traces the development of a single sided blind fastener at Airbus’ Broughton’s plant, commencing with the initial identification of the need for the A380XWB programme, through various prototypes testing early production trials. These requirements were further refined for A350XWB, resulting in a new contending fastener design, further evaluation and testing before pre-production trials and selection for A350XWB programme. Experience gained has led to further design development by the supplier leading to its current applications which are explained and the next steps of our Journey.

The automation takt time of wing assembly can be shortened with the use of single-sided temporary fasteners by providing temporary part clamping and doweling during panel drilling. Feeding these fasteners poses problems due to their complexity in design and overall heavy weight. In the past, Electroimpact has remotely fed these fasteners by blowing them through pneumatic tubing. This technique has resulted in occasional damage to fasteners during delivery and a complex feed system that requires frequent maintenance. Due to these issues, Electroimpact has developed a new fully automated single-sided temporary fastening system for installation of the LISI Clampberry fasteners in wing panels for the C919 wing factory in Yanliang, China. The feed system stores fasteners in gravity-fed cartridges on the end effector near the point of installation.

V-band joint is widely used in turbocharger industry. It is used to connect housings in turbocharger for both passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle applications, which can provide simple and robust solutions to replace bolt flanges. However, current issue for V-band joint in turbine side is the higher cost. The major cost for V-band joint comes from T-bolt which works in very hostile environment with high temperature and high vibration level. T-bolt is made from special stainless steel which takes around a half cost of total joint. This paper introduces a new V-band joint which replaces T-bolt from special bolt to standard bolt through changing bolt stress status from tension to compression, which provides possibility to reduce cost greatly. The prototype is made and performed static tests including anti-rotating torque test and salt spray test.

This technical paper details an optimized Drivmatic machine design delivered to a Tier 1 aero structure supplier to automate drilling and installation of rivets, hi-loks, lockbolts & swage collars for individual fuselage panel assemblies with high throughput & strict quality requirements. While certain robot solutions continue to be explored for specific applications at many Tier 1 aero structure suppliers, robot payload capacity has limitations beyond certain criteria, which often times point towards an alternative machine design as in this case study. A typical approach for adding more automation is to allocate shop floor space based on the solution's foot print, however contrary to most approaches this solution had to be designed to fit within a pre-determined factory footprint over a geographic location with a high water table that would not permit a foundation.

The newest generation of automated fastening machines require a feed system that is smaller, more flexible, and faster than any currently available. The feed system must be compact enough to fit on a robot base, yet have a capacity large enough to support unmanned production for hours. A large variety of fasteners must be supported and the entire system must be reloaded or reconfigured in minutes to match the next work piece being assembled by the machine. When requested by the part program, the correct fastener must be released directly and immediately into the feed tube to minimize cycle time. This paper describes a new “plate cartridge” feed system developed to meet these needs.

Successfully riveting aerospace fatigue-rated structure (for instance, wing panels) requires achieving rivet interference between a minimum and a maximum value in a number of locations along the shank of the rivet. In unbalanced structure, where the skin is much thicker than the stringer, this can be particularly challenging, as achieving minimum interference at D2 (the exit of the skin) can often be a problem without exceeding the maximum interference at D4 (exit of the stringer). Softer base materials and harder, higher-strength rivets can compound the problem. This paper presents a solution that has been successfully implemented on a production commercial aircraft. The application of a special coating on the tail side die dramatically reduces D4 interference, which in some instances resulted in a reduction of more than 30%. This allowed an increase in forming force to increase D2 interference and made for a much more robust process.

The industry wide requirement of new highly flexible automated fastening systems in aircraft production has created the need for developing new fastening systems. This paper will focus on the development of the Frame Riveting Assembly Cell (FRAC) by BROETJE-Automation to meet this need. The new FRAC machine configuration is built for automated drilling and fastening of different aircraft type panels. It is highly flexible with a high speed positioning system mounted outer end effector. System travel is limited only by installed track length. The FRAC integrates well with conventional and reconfigurable automated fastening work holding tools.
