True Position Robotics (TPR) enters digital project collaboration with Spirit AeroSystems, on project DELTA (Digitally Enabled Low-Cost Technologies for Aerostructures)

This project is in two parts. The first is the integration of TPR’s robotic drilling system into the “digital thread”. This includes full off-line robot programming, using Siemens PLM, and TPR’s robot guidance technology to create an absolute digital twin.   The drill itself is low payload, low energy, and a concession-free solution (part of […]

Development of a robotic system for automated drilling and inspection of small aerostructures

Abstract Traditional solutions developed for the aerospace industry must overcome challenges posed for automation systems like design, requalification, large manual content, access, and tight tolerances.  At the same time, automated systems should avoid the use of dedicated equipment so they can be shared between jigs; moved between floor levels and access either side of the workpiece. This […]
