Modern aircraft manufacturing involves drilling and countersinking hundreds of thousands to millions of holes. A new book from SAE International examines the automation of this process and the impact it has on production.
Automated/Mechanized Drilling and Countersinking of Airframes focuses on automating the process of drilling and countersinking holes during airframe manufacturing. Since this is the area of greatest return on investment for airframe producers, the book provides a stepped approach for evaluating possible areas for applying automation and a detailed description of the process for choosing, acquiring, and transitioning the right machinery for success. It also provides a vision for a 10- to 15-year future state of airframe manufacture.
