Ascent redefines automation for the aerospace industry by coupling process enabling technology with the right motion platforms to gain the greatest part accessibility and factory flexibility. Ascent stops at nothing to drive manufacturing excellence for our customers. From our standard solutions of semi-automated and fully automatic positioning systems to our customized automation solutions, Ascent creates more than an automation application: we provide a value-added solution.
Each overhead positioning system, sized to meet customer-specifications, interfaces with the riveter to assure safe movement without causing damage to the panel or riveter. These are commonly used to aid the positioning and fastening of fuselage panels, bulkheads, door assemblies, large frame sub-assemblies and even simpler, smaller wings and spars. From simple linear rails to patent-pending arc-frame systems.
We can automate drilling applications using innovative architecture to accommodate parts from spars to fuselages, from simple linear rails to patent-pending arc-frame systems. Our mobile systems provide added flexibility and are portable which allows them to be easily deployed and re-deployed with minimal setup and no programming.
From a simple 3-axis up, to an 8-axis system, we will find the most efficient and economical approach for your application.
