Development and validation of a self-adaptive system for automated assembly of major composite aerostructures

Specific Challenge:

An automated system shall be developed for the assembly of regional aircraft composite fuselage panels, by means of innovative features for recognition of actual position and shape of parts to be drilled, with the aim to generate the correct pattern of holes with “best fit” algorithm to be developed. Application will be the assembly of skins, stringers, frames and door surround components. After the development phase, the innovative process and related tool shall be validated and costs assessed through the execution of dedicated tests at Topic Manager plant where it will also be used for regional aircraft fuselage full scale demonstrator. Please refer to the full and formal topic descriptions published in this call.

Planned opening date:
17 March 2017
Deadline: 21 June 2017
