Automated Laser Assisted Stringer Positioning System 2013-01-2253

Stringer misplacement in the latest design of full CFRP wing covers causes cost and lead time in the further processes due to reworks in the torsion box assembly., To improve and solve this matter, ARITEX has developed an automated Laser assisted Stringer positioning system that allows the flexible, one-by-one and accurate position of the non-cured Stringers in the wing cover.This paper describes how ARITEX has developed and implemented this system in two different CFRP wings using the same technical concept adapted to the context and geometry of each aircraft, and how the targets were achieved reducing the misplacement problem from previous projects.
