Our business unit thyssenkrupp System Engineering is a recognized force in automated production and assembly systems, and test systems. We have been substantiating for decades the standards we set ourselves in quality, flexibility and customer centricity in the automotive industry. We are now transferring our process and technology expertise to the aircraft production sector for future-oriented structure assembly and automation.
The robot-based application enables full precision automation of the technological process usually established in aircraft production - the positive joining of structure parts. "arcarde" stands for Assembly Robotic Cell Application for Riveting and Drilling End Effector, and makes possible drilling and countersinking in a single process step – including quality control.
Planning and technical assessments
Planning and technical assessments
Rationalization, increasing of production capacities, automation and optimization measures and cost improvements - these are all challenges we are glad to take on together with our customers. thyssenkrupp System Engineering offers its customers full realization of technology and process-oriented projects - from planning through to acceptance, worldwide. Included here are substantiated production planning for assembly and production of aircraft, sections and components, the expansion of existing production capabilities and the development of automated solutions for production.
Complex investment decisions? Transparency of a fixed-price quotation for budget planning? Costs and risks must be minimized - especially in large-scale projects. We assist our customers in concentrating on deadlines and budgets, and not getting caught up in technical detail. As an experienced system integrator with a broad level of expertize in special-purpose machinery manufacture, we at thyssenkrupp System Engineering assume layout, process and overall installation planning for our customers in the aircraft industry.
We at thyssenkrupp System Engineering are a reliable partner for all types of interlinked assembly. Using our customers' range of components as the starting point, our team of engineers develops the best possible solution methodologies for assembly. We understand the planning, realization and after-sales service for the assembly line to be a package. This enables us to reduce interfaces, achieve financial savings, increase production yield and minimize risk.
Robot applications, controller hardware and software, transport/handling/test systems, production management systems, machining equipment and positioning systems – automated solutions for the aircraft industry are diverse and complex. Our engineers feel at home in this environment. They render possible customer-centric deployment of automation solutions for all areas of aircraft construction.
Developing a new transportation system solution for a product; planning a new production facility; moving small, medium, extremely heavy or sensitive components and systems in production or an entire logistics chain; ergonomically organizing existing or new workplaces in production - the requirements in the handling and transportation sector are strict and extremely multi-faceted. Flexibility, ergonomics and reliability are therefore key.
Engineering, production, delivery, entering into operation and after-sales service - this describes our value-add chain in the areas of jig construction and dies. Our range of services here extends from adapted hand tools for the purposes of attaining ergonomic improvements, increasing throughput and eliminating assembly faults through to 40 m long large-scale jigs for aircraft decks. Our experienced suppliers and own production mean we are also able to realize short delivery and reaction times for our customers.
Changing location? Short realization time frame? We have the turnkey solution ready to hand, worldwide. We take off your hands the conversion and/or relocation of production systems – not just of machines and equipment delivered by ourselves. We offer turnkey solutions at fixed prices for relocations – regardless of where the journey takes you.
Maintenance means to us the safeguarding of productivity over the entire product life cycle. We deploy custom maintenance models to assist our customers with the preservation and improvement of availability and quality of production systems.
Together with our customers, we develop solutions which ensure increased efficiency. We analyze and optimize processes, and thereby introduce transparency into spare parts management. This approach means minimal process costs arise in spare part management. With detailed pre-sales consultation, we are able to identify risk parts up front, and thereby minimize conditional outage times.
The professional training of employees is the key to success. Employee qualification levels which meet the respective requirements guarantee productivity during system operation. They raise the level of in-house expertize when faults occur, heighten occupational health and safety, and ensure maximum quality. Goal-oriented training results in compliance with occupational health and safety regulations. We also notice a higher level of employee satisfaction at our customers. We at thyssenkrupp System Engineering provide not only the organization and holding of training on our own products, but also on the complex units from our technology partners.
