The Challenge before Adaptive Manufacturing
Using composites for aircraft components presents opportunities for new ways to process parts. However, composites come with unique challenges such as impacting the ability to produce accurate parts and high part diversity even within a family of parts. Traditionally, parts have been trimmed only while clamped in rigid tools to secure nominal shape. This results in significant investment in tooling, design, production, maintenance, storage and handling.
Adaptive Manufacturing Solution and Benefits
As an alternative, PaR Systems has developed the Adaptive Manufacturing System that incorporates a Robotic Fixture, a Precision Motion Machine and an Integrated Process Head. The Robotic Fixture allows the entire family of parts to be managed with one fixture that remains within the machine footprint.
- Cost Effective: 1 fixture for more than 400 parts.
- High Productivity: The fixture can quickly change to
accommodate over 400 parts. Time to change between parts
is less than 1 minute.
- Inspection: Laser scanner provides 100% fast and accurate
inspection while the part is in the cell.
