The Power RACe (Robot Assembly Cell) is a highly flexible robotic system specifically designed for the needs of the aerospace industry. It functions as an automated positioning system to perform multiple processes in one machine such as drilling, riveting, milling and other high presicion, high-force applications.
Components such as wing box, stabilizers, fuselage etc. can be automated drilled and riveted by the mobile robot. The systems is highly standardised and relies on proven technologies with long term spare part availability. With up to 50% reduced drill times and 40% higher overall performance, the Power RACe is the ideal system to automate complex industrial manufacturing processes – suitable even on lower rate programs.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Broetje-Automation have finalized one of the most advanced production lines in the aerospace industry. At the MHI Hiroshima factory the final fastening system of the new panel production line for the Boeing 777-X program was completed and handed over to the customer. The two production lines include nine major fastening systems and mark a big milestone towards the digitally integrated Factory of the Future.
For the production of each aircraft several hundred thousands of fasteners have to be installed. While mostly rivets that require a double-sided installation are used, single-sided fasteners have also become more and more popular in the industry. They are used to assemble primary and secondary aircraft structures especially in locations with limited accessibility.
