Development of a Reconfigurable Fixture for the Automated Assembly and Disassembly of High Pressure Rotors for Rolls-Royce Aero Engines

Abstract : This paper describes a novel fixturing system for the automated assembly and disassembly of aero engine components. The proposed system has the ability to automatically reconfigure for a number of different parts and allows the precise control and monitoring of its clamping positions and exerted clamping forces. Aspects of the control software of this system, like the graphical user interface (GUI) and the relational data base system containing post-process and configuration data, are described.
