TRENDS IN AEROSPACE ASSEMBLY: INTRODUCTION – BuildIT Software
Sectors submitted by the Researcher. A common demonstrator will be used for validating the research results. A dedicated construction area for various aspects of manuafcturing has been set up. WP 1 – Technology assessment and targets specification WP 2 – Research of adjustable multi-point tooling technology WP2 aimed to study the fundamentals of MPF methodology and explore the capabilities of flexible fabrication tooling technology for aircraft panels.
Summary on Grant Application Form. Final Annual Project Report Final report. The research seeks to develop methodologies, software tools, and to exploit technological advances in robotic and measurement technology to jibless an environment for enabling jigless assembly of Aerostructures.
Offline programming means that the robots are programmed in a computer environment without disturbing manuafcturing process. This allows every part to fit together and saves [on] costs and time.
There were four main end results: This will lead to the realisation of rapid dieless forming of skin panels and to the accurate jigless fabrication of panel structures in aviation. Summary on Grant Application Form The research seeks to develop methodologies, software tools, and to exploit technological advances in robotic and measurement technology to build an environment for enabling jigless assembly of Aerostructures.

WP2 also studied in detail the use of the adjustable multi-point tooling technology for the procedures of joining, measurement or assembly of aircraft panels, in particular on procedures for surface positioning jiglless non-contact measurement. WP 4 – Integration and validation WP4 aimed to integrate the developed hardware and software components into a DATAFORM tooling system ready for validation and its full functions, and to test and optimise the developed digitally adjustable manufacturinf tooling, and validate the flexible tooling with different materials for different applications.
Volvo Construction Equipment is at the forefront of this development and is now investing in a pilot project that will streamline the production of low volume items and reduce production costs. There, Delfoi Robotics’s offline programming maunfacturing plays a key role. Volvo Construction Equipment wants to move away from this by introducing a new type of robotization.
Details of Grant
Many manufacturers in the mabufacturing and manufacturing industry have items that are to be produced in low volume, but in several variants. Development and implementation of digitally adjustable multi-point tooling and techniques in the manufacture of aircraft products.
Aerospace, Defence and Marine Related Grants: Maximum manufacturing flexibility also requires the fast creation of programs when the robots weld a new item. SA-designed and -built aircraft enters test phase 25th July By: The collaborative research involves 5 academic institutions and five major aerospace companies. The work involves definition of the role of tooling within the assembly environment and the inter-relationships between product design, manufacture and assembly characteristics.
Potential use in non-academic contexts. Paramount Group had also invested in one of only two of the computer measuring machine facilities in the world for its manufacturing process.

A theoretical analysis on the mechanism of MPF was carried out for dieless forming applications. Manufacturing machines for Ahrlac were already on site at the Aerosud Innovation and Training Centre, in Centurion, where the production of the aircraft would take place.
