Our Final Result
If aircrafts suffer from FODs, the airfoils have to be checked and repaired as quickly as possible in order to minimize aircraft downtime costs. The crucial challenges were creating a miniaturized solution that still has sufficient power to repair airfoils and creating a precise damage measurement solution that prevents additional repair shop visits by indicating whether the reparation can be done on-wing.
A proof of concept to show that a miniature robot arm enables the automation of the process with its complex technological require-ments.
- 3D Printing
- Embedded Hardware
Proof of concept, new business opportunities, the prospect of minimized maintenance costs.
