The massive size of the A380 Trailing Edge Spar structure and challenges associated with its construction made it well suited for automation. PaR Systems, Inc. worked with Airbus UK on a pair of gantry systems each 55 meters long to provide the drilling, fettling and coldworking needs required for the Trailing Edge Spar. The processes and sequences for constructing the spar structure were further enhanced by flexible database driven software that improved productivity.
