Current Riveting/Fastening Methodology and Future Assembly Equipment Philosophy 961866

This paper is focusing on considerations pertaining to riveting/fastening systems and assembly methodology currently in use for large aircraft fuselage structures. Discussion of process principles on which current systems are based is addressing distribution of rivets along the aircraft structure, riveting/fastening systems and equipment flexibility.
An attempt was made to predict the most probable future equipment development trends based on the need for more efficiency in all aircraft structural assembly and in high level and final assembly areas.
