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. Our automated line concept has been proven to drive out recurring costs, streamline the manufacturing cycle and minimize the risk associated with automated manufacturing and assembly.

Gemcor’s fuselage systems have supported the aerospace industry for the past 75 years. Our modern, all-electric fastening technology offers a reliable, easy-to-use solution for any fuselage application. From simple, semi-automatic to 7-axis CNC solutions, all systems feature countersink depth control, active panel protection and resilient clamping.

Layup Molds

Ascent is a world leader in the design and fabrication of all types of layup molds and bond tools produced from invar, aluminum, steel, and composite materials for nacelles, wings, helicopter cabins and blades, fuselage mandrels and an assortment of detail parts including spars, stringers, and frames for the aerospace industry.
