Title (EN) DRILLING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE PERÇAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Drilling apparatus and method, the apparatus comprising: a first robot (10); a first member (30) (e.g. a pressure foot) and a drilling tool (38) both coupled to the first robot (10); a second robot (12); and a second member (52) coupled to the second robot (12); wherein the apparatus is arranged to press the members (30, 52) against opposite sides of a part to be drilled (2, 100) (e.g. an aircraft panel) so as to hold the part (2, 100) and prevent deflection of at least a portion of the part (2, 100); and the first member (30) and the drilling tool (38) are arranged such that the drilling tool (38) may drill into the portion of the part (2, 100) of which deflection is opposed from the side of the part (2, 100) pressed against by the first member (30). The robots (10, 12) may be robotic arms.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de perçage. L'appareil comprend : un premier robot (10), un premier élément (30) (par exemple, un sabot de pression) et un outil de perçage (38) tous deux couplés au premier robot (10), et un second robot (12) et un second élément (52) couplé au second robot (12). L'appareil est agencé pour presser les éléments (30, 52) contre les côtés opposés d'une pièce à percer (2, 100) (par exemple, un panneau d'aéronef) de façon à maintenir ladite pièce (2, 100) et empêcher la flexion d'au moins une partie de la pièce (2, 100). Le premier élément (30) et l'outil de perçage (38) sont agencés de telle sorte que ce dernier (38) peut effectuer un perçage dans la partie de la pièce (2, 100) dont la flexion est opposée au côté de ladite pièce (2, 100) pressée par le premier élément (30). Les robots (10, 12) peuvent être des bras robotiques.
