bright yellow automatic guided vehicle, navigating via lasers and angles on the building walls, picks up the wing and moves it to final drill where, Linhart says, "the mother of all autodrills" - a six-axis gantry with dual independent heads - drills and countersinks
6,700 holes in the lower wing and 4,400 in the upper, through skin and structure. "We've had very few defects in autodrill - orders of magnitude less than in manually drilled legacy aircraft," says Bobby Williams, air vehicle team lead. "
Don't congratulate me yet... It's still a potential gloat... We sold units to them, and assume they were mounted within this system... But we can't confirm whether these are our units or simply them using the generic therm "autodrill" at this point. Too much secrecy on their end and no photos available that I can find just yet.
But it seems likely that our product is integrated in their system.
One thing I can tell you for sure... We didn't provide the six-axis controls. :)
