Automatization in assembly cells and lines increases the processing speed in aircraft manufacturing with the highest quality standards. Innovative assembly concepts integrate in the digital factory, the SMART FACTORY under the model of industry 4.0 as substantial component.

This can be the implementation of collaborating robots for extension of today used latest generation of riveting robots. Self-propelled robots with adapted end-effectors are under development. Additional fields of activity are optimized ergonomics and logistics as well as human-machine interaction.

Considered is the entire process chain from positioning of the Pre-manufactured detail parts to the tolerance compensation to the riveting process up to the protective coating as well as automated component testing.
