About the presentation
Aerospace companies continually struggle to successfully implement automation. Manufacturing requirements and product design, certifications, and complexity make automation more difficult than in industries such as automotive. Many new technologies and capabilities not commonly known throughout aerospace can solve past difficulties. This presentation shows real-world examples of automated aerospace processes that have helped further companies’ production needs. Plus, updates will be provided on new developments that further ease the implementation of advanced automation for some of aerospace’s most difficult processes. The presentation shows how collaborative robotics and solutions can be implemented for a successful manufacturing process. The session discusses solutions and new technology developments, including advances in collaborative robotics and automating aerospace production operations. Attendees will hear about the key project concepts common to all successful automation projects and learn how to avoid the common mistakes that cause automation failure.
