IJAC: Integrated Joining Assembly Cell
During fuselage assembly, the individual sections are joined to form the complete fuselage. The individual fuselage sections are first loaded into the station. Supported with laser measuring technology, they are subsequently joined in an automated positioning process.
We employ a special measuring system to warrant the required joining precision across longer distances: so-called cat eyes (targets) are attached directly onto the fuselage sections which are detected by the laser. Next, the actual 3D position data is collected and synchronized with the target data; every component is subsequently aligned in its precise joining position via NC-control and position correction.
