Develop solutions to add sacrificial material on CFRP C-Spar in order to machine it and obtain a nominal part shape (Tg31-3) to assemble without shimming with aluminium or titanium fitting. - Current technology requires to measure the gap between CFRP<

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

- Automated on-machine 3D scanning of as-is geometries. - Adaptive machining for automated removal of sacrificial material. - Elimination of the need for precise clamping elements allowing to adjust the parts. Parts are just fixed on the machine for
