Sealing

Automated solutions for individual purposes

The manual sealing process of aircraft structures is a time consuming task which requires absolute precision and quality. Broetje-Automation has successfully developed market-ready industrial technology to meet the high standards of the sealing process with automated systems.

Automatic sealing increases productivity, quality and consistency. The application is executed by standard industrial robots or based on a modular cobot integration, modified to a high precision manufacturing system by specially developed software of Broetje-Automation. The flexible control system and variable applicator heads allow the sealing of diverse, even most inaccessible aircraft parts, while maintaining and monitoring the quality of the applications with our peripheral systems. The newly designed end-effector is capable to provide both, catridge application and mixing of two-component sealings in process in order to replace expensive pre-mixed sealants.
