FRAC (Frame Riveter Assembly Cell) 2016-01-2079

The industry wide requirement of new highly flexible automated fastening systems in aircraft production has created the need for developing new fastening systems.
This paper will focus on the development of the Frame Riveting Assembly Cell (FRAC) by BROETJE-Automation to meet this need.
The new FRAC machine configuration is built for automated drilling and fastening of different aircraft type parts. It is highly flexible with a high speed positioning system mounted multifunction end effector. System travel is limited only by installed track length. The FRAC integrates well with conventional and reconfigurable automated fastening work holding tools.
