All Electric Rotary Head Fasting System at Bombardier/Canadair 2003-01-2945

Bombardier Canadair was the first airframe manufacturer to take advantage of Gemcor's “state of the art” All Electric Rotary Head fastening system. Due to the success of the first 2 systems installed at Canadair, they have purchased 2 additional for a total of 4 systems in use. See figure 1.

Significant increase in fastener installation process quality indicates this is now the standard that all automatic fastening machines shall be measured against.
