End Effectors

State-of-the-art Brown Aerospace end effectors achieve high-precision, near-burrless drilling of most surfaces and are designed to accommodate a wide variety of specific needs, including space constraints, coolant delivery and chip vacuum systems. This expansive functionality is combined with state of the art vision systems and constant, monitored pressure on the drilling surface.

Motion Platforms

At Brown Aerospace, we emphasize light, flexible automation. Heavy machinery has been replaced by scalable, modular, interchangeable end effectors that can work with myriad motion platforms. In the morning a drill head might be used on an area of fuselage and in the afternoon transferred to a wing.

Fastener Feed Systems

Our fastener management equipment segment can satisfy any number of applications. Single- or dual-carousel fastener storage and delivery systems are offered. Utilizing cassettes as the method of storage, these feeders can hold large volumes and types of fasteners. We also offer sealant application with this system.

Automated Assembly Projects

Ascent Aerospace is at the forefront of a clear industry trend that is blurring the lines between an automated system and a tool, to optimize system utilization and increase performance and functionality. Tooling is becoming an integral part of the automated system as they are blended into a common work center.

Tooling + Automation

The light, flexible advantage

Brown Aerospace is a premier supplier of high-precision, integrated systems, motion platforms and end effectors used for automated drilling, countersinking, fastening and sealant applications. We offer clients reliable, tried-and- tested technology of the highest quality and specification, backed by an expert, highly- experienced engineering department.

  • Diametric tolerances : +/- 0.0005″
  • Countersink depths: +/- 0.001″

At Brown Aerospace, we emphasis light, flexible automation. Heavy machinery has been replaced by scalable, interchangeable, modular products. In the morning a drill head might be used on an area of fuselage and in the afternoon transferred to a wing, maximizing spindle time, improving takt time, and sparing our customers both recurring and non-recurring costs. And we require minimal floor space with no specialty foundation.

Brown Aerospace has led a clear industry trend blurring the lines between 'automation' and 'tooling'. We continue to innovate with new geometries for motion platforms that throw away the old rules and use assembly tooling to provide direct access to the part, without transfers to a separate machine.
