ASTRO - Assembly Tooling for Fast Rotorcraft
Objetive is to get a complete set of assembly and maintenance tooling, including auxiliary tooling.
Due to the tight tolerances required in aeronautical industry, some assembly jigs will be equipped with an optical structured light
measure system that will allow the set up of the tooling and the position verification of the parts during assembly with
tolerances equal or under 0.1 mm. The use of this kind of systems are spearhead in the field of precision measurement and
the advantages against currently measurement systems, as laser tracker, will be shown in following paragraphs. In addition,
optical systems are becoming the preferred measurement systems in automatized assembly jigs which will be the step
forward in the aeronautical assembly lines. In addition, new disruptive designs will be developed for the assembly devices in order to get, smarter, safer and cost savings tools.
