Abstract:
Pneumatic, manually operated, drilling machines are used to produce a significant proportion of all holes drilled during wing manufacture. Drilling machine design and the manual drilling process has not changed significantly in decades.By employing miniature, low power, electronics and interfacing techniques, a monitoring system has been developed. This system enables improved process control of the manual drilling operation.Machine calibration management, measurement of drill performance, jig drilling error control and asset management are some of the benefits attainable.This project will hopefully encourage others to discover the potential for improving historically established processes, by employing modern technological developments.
