Boeing to introduce automated wing manufacturing facility

Boeing has revealed plans to introduce automated processes to its 737 wing manufacturing facility in Renton, Washington, in a move to speed up 737 construction to a projected rate of 47 aircraft per month.

The process will involve the attachment of stringers to wing skin panels on its panel assembly line using a robotic machine.

The machine will install fasteners at twice the speed of the engineers who currently perform the work.

Boeing also expects the machines to reduce manufacturing defects by up to two-thirds.
