Aerospace & Defense Industry Robotic Applications:

- ROBOTIC DRILLING AND FASTENING

Many aerospace production processes require hundreds or thousands of holes to be drilled. The superior speed and accuracy of robots makes them a perfect fit for drilling and fastening applications. From pilot hole drilling to final size drilling and reaming, industrial robots provide major productivity gains for manufacturers. Sigma DT is a leader in aerospace robotics and has the expertise to build custom solutions for each area of production line while exceeding strict industry requirements..


- ROBOTIC CARBON-FIBER (COMPOSITE PART) MANUFACTURING

Automated fiber placement (AFP) is a process where industrial robots lay one or more layers of carbon-fiber tape onto a mold to create a composite part. These composite parts have become widely popular in the aerospace industry due to their lightweight and durability, and Sigma DT provides the AFP solutions that your company needs to produce these products in high demand.

- TESTING AND INSPECTION

There is no room for failure in aerospace manufacturing. In aerospace, tolerances are very tight, and inspections play a critical role in producing reliable products. Robotic ultrasonic inspection is one of the most common types of robotic inspection applications used in aerospace today, especially for the detection of faults in irregularly shaped composite components. Sigma DT creates solutions for every inspection need, from the smallest components to the largest, full-scale assemblies.

- ROBOTIC  WELDING

Robotic welding provides the repeatability and accuracy required for safety and quality when working with titanium or alloy parts in motors. Composite parts have become popular in aerospace, but Sigma DT has the flexibility to provide solutions for a wide range of components, including composite, titanium, and alloy. Our experience and solutions will help you customize the solutions you need to provide precision welding in motors, turbines, and other metal parts.

- ROBOTIC SEALING AND DISPENSING

Sealing and dispensing applications in aerospace has traditionally been a difficult and slow process, especially for extremely large parts. But Sigma DT robots can be designed to cover distances of 40 feet or more, in speeds unavailable from a manual operator. In addition, robotic accuracy reduces the amount of sealant wasted in production.
