4 WingBox A380 During assembly: Volume and Maintain of Wingbox Tooling Struts

5 WingBox A380 Tooling Struts : Front Part

6 WingBox A380 Tooling Struts : Rear Part

7 WingBox A380 Measurement of Connecting Rods Lengths : Manufacture Carbon Struts 143 Struts : 66 Front Part 77 Rear Part

8 WingBox A380 Measurement of Connecting Rods Lengths : //  à H9 Lengths between 1050mm and 2350mm

9 Synopsis I.Struts in Wingbox A380 II.Former Mean of Measurement III.Tests of feasibility and comparisons with other systems IV.Measurement and Automation V.Additional features

10 Former Measurement « Caliper » :

11 Former Measurement Former Process (4 separate areas): 1. Remove the floor in the Measurement area 2. Remove the Tooling Struts in the Measurement area 3. Calibrate the caliper with a Reference Bar

12 Former Measurement 4.Mesurement of Connecting Rods Lengths 5.Fill manually the results sheet 6.Re-install the Tooling Struts 7.Restart the same process for the 3 other areas 8.Fill all the results in an Excel file

13 Former Measurement Drawbacks : Need to remove the floor Need to divide the Measurement into 4 parts Need to remove and install again all the Tooling Struts Lead time: 8 hours for 2 operators Caliper : heavy, bulky, difficult to handle

14 Former Measurement Drawbacks : Need to calibrate the caliper Risk of errors in the positioning of the caliper Risk of errors when the operator reads or writes the values Risk of errors when filling the Excel file

15 Synopsis I.Struts in Wingbox A380 II.Former Mean of Measurement III.Tests of feasibility and comparisons with other systems IV.Measure and Automation V.Additional features

16 Tests and Comparisons Measurement of WingBox’ Front Part Adhesive targets to simulate all the struts position

17 Tests and Comparisons 14 accurate targets for a comparison between the four measurement systems :  V-STARS S8/ INCA3  V-STARS E4X/ NIKON D2X  Laser Tracker LEICA (LTD500)  Caliper in service

18 Tests and Comparisons V-STARS Measurement :

19 Tests and Comparisons Comparison: Values in millimeters

20 Tests and Comparisons Results : Feasibility of the measurement with V-STARS shown (~ 50 pictures) Rapidity and simplicity to set up the targets and to achieve the measurement

21 Tests and Comparisons System chosen by AIRBUS Nantes: V-STARS E4X System / NIKON D2X

22 Synopsis I.Struts in Wingbox A380 II.Former Mean of Measurement III.Tests of feasibility and comparisons with other systems IV.Measurement and Automation V.Additional features

23 Measurement and automation 1.Targets 2.Preparation of the measurement 3.Taking pictures 4.Automation with V-StarsCom 5.Results

24 Measurement - Targets Two kinds of targets used : for free holes for holes with tooling struts free holes tooling strut

25 Measurement - Targets TSOR with 3 Balls : balls

26 Measurement - Targets Target for free holes: Tree balls mounted on spring  Auto-centres the target  Holds the target in the hole without constraint

27 Measurement - Targets Target for holes with tooling strut : 3 balls to centre and maintain the target

28 Measurement - Targets The target is aligned to the centre of the hole mounted on the bar pin Base of the target against the surface

29 Measurement - Targets Target for holes with tooling strut : Feature Target is used to construct a point with the same offset than the TSOR

30 Measurement - Targets Coded targets : for Feature Target for Automation (Driver file is used) Right label Strut’s length automatically computed

31 Measurement - Preparation The measurement is done in 2 steps : Wingbox Front Part (66 lengths) Wingbox Rear Part (77 lengths) TSOR targets can be inserted in any free holes. Targets installed on tool struts have a specific position.

32 Measurement - Preparation Each target is used in Front Part and Rear Part of the Wingbox.

33 Measurement - Preparation Scale Bar :

34 Measurement - Pictures Wingbox front part ready to be measured :

35 Measurement Procedure Stations

36 Measurement Procedure Stations

37 Measurement - Pictures Measurement : 48 pictures Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in the PC. Open “V- StarsCom” (automation software of V-STARS)

38 Measurement – V-StarsCom

41 Measurement – Excel File Result in Excel file

42 Measurement – Excel File Results of Front Part are filled in the Excel file. The Excel file will be completed automatically with the measurement data of the Rear Part. After results validation, the Struts can be manufactured.

43 Synopsis I.Struts in Wingbox A380 II.Former Mean of Measurement III.Tests of feasibility and comparisons with other systems IV.Measure and Automation V.Additional features

44 Additional Features Measurement of the Reference Plane :

45 Additional Features Check the “ΔY” value for each Strut // with the Reference Plane within 2mm Point on Upper Panel Point on Lower Panel

46 Additional Features A new Excel file will be automatically created with “ΔY” coordinates :

47 One operator measurement DISINSTALLING THE TARGETS = 30min TREATMENT with V-StarsCom = 10min TAKING PICTURES = 10min INSTALLING THE TARGETS = 30min for each part Front and Rear
