Pulse Motion Line 2011-01-2609

The demand of fulfilling the continually increasing customer requirements forces suppliers to always improve their system solutions to be state of the art.
The discussed Pulse Motion Assembly Line for complex 160° Aircraft Structures features the combined drilling and fastener installation in 160° closed complex aircraft structures and in parallel, the use of robots and workers in different cells. The equipment described herein fulfills high precision manufacturing under economic constraints using state-of-the-art accuracy improving realignment methods for robotics.
The system provides ultimate flexibility to handle different aircraft panels and types.
The paper is intended to describe and focus on the main aspects of the state-of-the-art technology in automated fastening and drilling process to meet the important customer production criteria. Furthermore, it shall explain the integration by presenting the process with a current example in production.
