Robots are Coming to Aircraft Assembly
Robots are Coming to Aircraft Assembly

Up to now, aircraft have been put together in huge assembly cells, but to build the necessary facilities is expensive and time-consuming. That is why Fraunhofer researchers have come up with a flexible assembly-line concept that features robots working in the same way they do in automotive production. The developers are presenting their new manufacturing approach at the Composites Europe trade fair in Stuttgart in Hall 4, Booth D03 from September 27 to 29. One of this future assembly line's first elements can also be seen there: a versatile component gripper made of lightweight CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic).
