Composite parts are difficult to produce, especially the control of the part thickness. This paper/presentation is in two parts, and describes an innovative process using integrated metrology for composite part manufacturing of a generic wing flap. The first paper describes the composite assembly process from a metrology focus and how an integrated Laser Radar system is used to measure actual thickness build-up compared to theoretical CAD/CAM nominal.
This second paper is on the automation capability of making the part. A robot is used to apply the composite ply's/tows. To analyze the machines capability and tune performance a high speed photogrammetry system is used. It is also used for automated placement of honeycombed structures within the part build, where guided assembly can be automated in future.
