  • Boeing Uses CSR Simulations to Raise Productivity of Large Riveting Machine for Fuselage Assemblies
    Leading aerospace company Boeing is using CimStation Robotics and SoftMachine simulation software from Applied Computing & Engineering to increase the productivity of large riveting machines used in the construction of aircraft fuselage assemblies at its Kansas production facility. Boeing's Wichita
  • A makeover for transport aircraft?
    The blended-wing-body concept could change the face of transport aircraft and airliners. From the earliest days of aviation, transport aircraft, along with most others, have relied on a single type of design, tube (or fuselage), and wing. It has served well and engineers at Airbus and Boeing
  • A century of progress in aircraft materials - Part 2 Metals
    . bought an aircraft company to supply planes to its airline. And based on Henry Ford's belief in using three engines for safety, a monoplane to avoid icing, and metal to simplify manufacturing, the company built the 4-AT. It was quickly dubbed the Tin Goose for its corrugated metal fuselage. (AT stood
  • Facilitating Commercial Aircraft Maintenance With Nook Ball Screws
    As a leading designer and manufacturer of airline maintenance stands and docking systems, Uni-Systems was one of several companies to respond to a request for proposal from American Airlines to develop a sophisticated maintenance docking system for its Boeing 777 and 767 class aircraft. To keep
  • A century of progress in aircraft materials - Part 1 Wood and Fabric
    yet strong enough to skin an aircraft, but they won't work in stressed-skin designs. Plywood, on the other hand, seemed just right to those trained and experienced in using wood and reluctant to make the jump to metal skins in the 1920s. One of the earliest planes with a plywood monocoque fuselage
  • Rack and Pinion System Cuts Servo Requirements for Gantry in Half
    When a manufacturer of large aircraft fuselage panels needed to build larger versions, SYN-APS Corp., Ontario, Calif., recommended a five-axis gantry-style machine that would move around a vertically mounted and stationary part. This configuration was opposite of the manufacturer's arrangement
  • Improvement of Hail Damage Inspection with Advanced 3D Imaging
    Mechanical damage on aircraft fuselage, wings and landing gear can be caused by hail. damage or various types of impact on the ground. Regardless of their origin, impacts on. aircraft must be inspected to ensure conformity with manufacturer requirements. Manual inspection techniques are still being
  • Coast Guard planes to get a room with a view
    . Mechanical-engineering students worked with Purdue Aviation Technology Professor Ronald Sterkenburg to recreate two mock panels of the aircraft's fuselage, one with the large window and one without. Researchers analyzed the two panels, comparing how much vibration and sound would be created in each
