Content
This paper describes the final development and testing of a combined riveting and assembly cell for the manufacture of Regional Jet Fuselage panels.
The cell consists of three industrial robots, two are used for riveting whilst the third is used for stringer placement. The cell has been tested using both simplified test parts and real airframe components. The paper describes the development and testing of the cell along with the enabling technologies that have been implemented to realise the cell.
