New Self-Removable Temporary Fasteners for Orbital Junction 2004-01-2815

This paper describes the development and application of new self-removable temporary fasteners for orbital junction. These low size temporary fasteners made of aluminum are easily automatically destructible by drilling and have been deployed into our automatic robot on final assembly line. The major benefit of these new temporary fasteners is then the possibility to be integrated into an automatic assembly process. The R&D team of the Final Assembly Line unit at Airbus - Toulouse, has conducted this project in cooperation with LISI Aerospace.
