Paper Content: The industry wide requirement of new highly flexible robotic automated fastening systems in aircraft production has created the need for developing a new aerospace robot which fulfils the high quality, performance and accuracy requirements for all aircraft part assemblies.
This paper will focus on the development and the integration into the production from Turkish Aerospace Industries of the new Broetje Automation aerospace robot identifies as Power RACe.
The new Power RACe is custom designed and built for automated drilling and fastening of different aircraft type panels. It is highly flexible, has heavier payload capacity, provides more accuracy and higher throughput compared to known robotic applications.
