Flex Track for use in Production 2005-01-3318

Lightweight and flexible automated drilling machines are becoming more common in aerospace industry to address the increase in demand for low cost assembly solutions. Successful production implementation of the Flex Track system has been accomplished by matching applications with appropriate design features. Following the concept of small lightweight machines, which rely on local accuracy and sacrifice stiffness and shear mass, the Flex Track tackles problems on a detail level. This paper describes how the evolutionary progress of the Flex Track drilling system has and continues to address the increase in demand for low cost automated drilling systems.
