SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System

SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System
Revolutionary Nutplate Automation
Introducing SmartAttach™
The average airplane utilizes 25,000 nutplates – all installed by hand. The patent-pending SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System eliminates the need for manual alignments, multiple tools, and procedures required by conventional nutplate attachment methods. The Smart Attach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System integrates centering, drilling, lubrication, countersinking, and riveting operations in a single machine. You can cut nutplate attachment times by at least 60%. You’ll greatly improve precision and repeatability for rivet and center holes. It also brings you IoT capabilities for intelligent monitoring and process management.

Integrated IoT technology tracks usage, productivity, and even predicts maintenance needs

MEET YOUR NEWEST CREW MEMBER

Occupying a mere 74 square feet of floor space, SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System utilizes up to two operators to drill and rivet nutplates to exacting standards at a pace never before possible…up to 8 times faster than manual teams alone. Designed for flexibility, SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System can be fork-trucked, oriented, and mounted to your factory floor based on your specific requirements. From there, it’s nutplate automation on a whole new level.

 

Faster, Simpler Semi-Automated Operation

The SmartAttach™ Automated Nutplate Installation System eliminates the need for a large number of the manual alignments, multiple tools, and procedures required by conventional nutplate attachment methods.

Drill Machine Operation

The operator places and radially aligns the part of the lower drill tool and engages the machine auto sequence. The machine automatically clamps, drills two holes, and releases the part.

Rivet Machine Operation

The operator places the nutplate and the part on the lower rivet tool and engages the machine auto sequence. The machine automatically rivets the nutplate to the part and releases the assembly.
