Construction of a Composite Fuselage Shell
Accuracy of + - 3/10 of a mm
Accurate over 18 x 3.5m area
6 string insertion in 7m hull
A cell for the positioning of stringers in CFRP fuselage parts was developed
The technology center Nordenham is where Premium Aerotec and FFT EDAG have developed the cell. The cell is used for production of the Airbus A350 XWB.
Traditionally, working with carbon fiber composites has been done manually
The wings and the 7m long hull of the Airbus A350 XWB are carbon fiber composite
Aerotec FFT EDAG were looking to automate the construction of a composite fuselage shell for the Airbus A350 XWB. Traditionally this kind of work has always been done manually, given the challengin...
