Composite Simulation (VCS), as well as Vericut for CNC machine simulation. Visitors will see the steps needed to get from a CAD-designed composite part to CNC programs that drive an Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) or Automated Tape Laying (ATL) machine. New projects on the implemen- tation of machine-independent off-line NC programming soft- ware for AFP and ATL machines will be highlighted, including work being done at NASA’s Langley Research Center using a 16-tow Electroimpact AFP machine.

MTConnected Multitasking


Advanced multitasking machining technology will be spot- lighted with a demonstration of an Integrex i-200ST machine featuring the new Mazatrol SmoothX CNC. Visitors will learn how MTConnect can be the communication standard for an entire factory. The small-footprint Integrex i-200ST machine features dual turning spindles, a lower turret and milling spindle for production of mid-size complex components up to 25.9" (658 mm) in diameter. Both turning spindles on the machine provide equal performance with


spindle speeds of 5000 rpm and C-axis turning control. Each also has a maximum bar work capacity that measures 2.56" (65 mm) in diameter. The SmoothX CNC for complex machining offers aerospace part manufacturers dramatically shortened machine cycle times, enhanced simultaneous fi ve- axis operations and more. Mazak Corp.

Robotic Riveting System A new robotic pulse production line will be used for future Boeing 777X jetliners. The system, known as the Fuselage Automated Upright Build (FAUB), will be the baseline manu- facturing process for the 777X and prior to that, for assem- bling fuselages for current 777 models. This production line uses guided KUKA robots equipped with end effectors made by Alema Automation to do the riveting currently performed

by workers using hand-held tools. The robots will work on the forward and aft sections, quickly installing up to 60,000 fasteners per 777 fuselage with high precision. The FAUB system, which was pre-assembled and integrated at KUKA Systems in Sterling Heights, MI, is undergoing the fi nal phase of testing and production readiness in a Boeing facility in Anacortes, WA.
