Broetje-Automation is the perfect partner for advanced and specialized drilling processes. Our balanced industrial process not only improves cycle time and speed of production, but also the quality of the drilling. Advanced automated technologies such as layered drilling of various materials and vibration assisted drilling (VAD) are finding their place in the factories of today and tomorrow. To meet the diverse needs of our customers worldwide, our drilling tools expand the portfolio in this segment to include special processes such as the production of hexagonal holes, drilling without internal cooling or long tools for narrow geometries.
Incorporated into various of our systems such as robots and NC-Machines, the process comes alive and improves the speed, the size of the hole, the quality and last but not least expands the use of different materials.
Due to advanced and innovative technology the accurate positioning of drillholes can be managed automatically in the process. The optical reference system is able to skip areas based on visual cues and move to the next drilling position. This makes it easier to monitor the drilling process.
Broetje-Automation GmbH has delivered its highly innovative STAXX One Automated Fiber Placement Robot to the Composite Technology Center / CTC GmbH (An Airbus Company) in Stade, Germany. This advanced and automated fiber deposition system will be used in conjunction with the CTC and Airbus teams to create ecologically efficient and innovative composite structures, in support of a more sustainable future of mobility.
The vertical integration of future-oriented technologies and sustainable interconnections in the Factory of the Future are the topics of the “Vertical E2E” research project led by Premium AEROTEC, which was launched in 2022. The first results have now been presented on 25.01.2023 at the Technology Day in the Varel Technology Centre.
