This paper will cover the design of the pinch bolt injector used on the A380 panel to stringer joining machines #9 and #10. The bolt injector was designed to decrease bolt insertion cycle time, increase reliability and incorporate a fully automated bolt purge system. This paper will cover how the injector handles bolt diameters from 1/4″-1/2″ and how it helped increase the machines' bolt insertion rate from 5.5 bolts per minute to 8 bolts per minute
