The use of thermally stable materials for the construction of assembly fixtures. The aim is to use low thermal expansion materials an example being carbon fibre reinforced plastic tube. The use of the carbon fibre for the tooling has the advantage tha<

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Demonstrate the use the Upper Cover cassette during the build and assembly of an Upper Cover for the LAWiB demonstration. Poor Configuration Control of the Assembly DMU lead to a complete redesign being required without enough time to develop the desig
