The primary goal of this scenario is the development of design solutions which have the potential to reduce shimming efforts while maintaining state of the art design solutions and keeping modifications of existing products to a minimum. Today, the int

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Development of design solutions which allow shim-less integration of integral structures such as integral frames in order to reduce assembly efforts (RC), lead time and weight (resulting from reduced shimming material). Faster manufacturing processes,<
