Presentation and objectives

WINBOXTOOL project develops a set of versatile prototype tools (80% of the tooling is common for right and left wing) for efficient transport and assembly of winglets and ailerons multifunctional of the new generation of optimized wing (reduction of the 15% in time and 10% in cost).

The innovative method proposed is based on the use of an all-in-1 manufacturing robot for large volumes and additive manufacturing techniques, the effect of most errors is eliminated and geometrical deviations in tooling and tooling manufacturing and in the assembly processes, since the entire process is implemented in a single fully controlled workspace.

The objective of the project is to validate this manufacturing and assembly method on a and on representative components, for their application in space and on to new tooling, especially for the assembly of systems and large subsystems.

The success of the project in terms of obtaining tolerances and surface finishes required, involves the achievement of the following challenges technological:

  • Establish a permanent system for monitoring the position of the tool and tooling.
  • Implement on the manufacturing robot the assembly operations of the inserts and other tooling set accessories.
  • Improve ergonomics, precision and automation of the functions performed by operators during the assembly process.
  • Design and produce auxiliary tooling using innovative additive manufacturing technologies.
  • Increase the capabilities of the simulation and analysis system, in accordance with the prototype tooling requirements and to quality standards aeronautics.

ITAINNOVA ‘s work focuses on the technological challenges related to improving the precision of the manufacturing robot.
