This will lead to the development of an adjustable multi-point tooling compositing punch matrices to replace the solid dies or hard tooling.

These production aspects included composite stations, machining from billets and sheet metal, manufacturing of most of the visible wing and tail parts, as well as protoshop and pipe manifacturing. Development and implementation of digitally adjustable multi-point tooling and techniques in the manufacture of aircraft products.

WP2 also studied in detail the use of the adjustable multi-point tooling technology for the procedures of joining, measurement or assembly of aircraft panels, in particular on procedures for surface positioning and non-contact measurement. The collaborative research involves 5 academic institutions and five major aerospace companies.

Details of Grant

The industrial and scientific breakthrough objectives of the project were:. Sectors submitted by the Researcher. The main advantageous features of DATAFORM were rapid, universal, and cost-effective with high flexibility compared with present hard fabrication tooling.

A theoretical analysis on the mechanism of MPF was carried out for dieless forming applications. Read more about offline programming and robotization. Delfoi Delfoi develops, markets and supports Industry 4. A common demonstrator will be used for validating the research results. In jig,ess, DATAFORM aspired to enable rapid, flexible and cost-effective forming of skin panels in aircrafts with digitally adjustable multi-point tooling. This will lead to the realisation of rapid dieless manufacturinng of skin panels and to the accurate jigless fabrication of panel structures in aviation.
