Work platforms for pre-assembly of subassemblies

Task

 

An European aircraft manufacturer was in need of various work platforms for use in the pre-assembly of individual sub-assemblies such as fuselage, cockpit, wings, rudders and elevators (tail assembly).

 

 

Solution

 

For each assembly, the customer received a work platform precisely optimised for the respective work situation. The contours of the platforms have been exactly adapted to the aircraft components in order to enhance the safety of the assembly workers by preventing gaps between the platform and the component. In places, the platform has been covered with a wooden floor to make work in a kneeling position more comfortable.

The work platform depicted here was developed for assembly work on the cockpit of an aircraft.
