MTorres Capability to Supply Specially Tailored Solutions to our Customers
 



MTORRES philosophy of continuously assign efforts to highly sophisticated R&D activities has develop an atmosphere in which is not unusual to address special complex problems.
The result of the implementation of this philosophy has lead to the existence at some of our customers sites a number of extremely unique and complex but also successful solutions, which are in operation for a number of years.
The following systems are perfect examples of the above defined open approach to develop those particular and special solutions.

Specials Solutions

The powerful engineering capability that MTORRES has created over the years plus the always

available positive attitude towards getting involved on the development of very unique customized and specially tailored solutions, in order to match specific customer requirements, had been successfully used by some of our customers to obtain high performance unique solutions for their, sometimes, unique needs.

The TORRES RCS (Reconfigurable Check System) is a unique, ‘three in one’, proven solution for wing skins measuring system.

 

 

THREE IN ONE

The TORRES RCS (Reconfigurable Check System) is a unique, ‘three in one’, proven solution for wing skins measuring system.

Its consists on the integration of three machines working together on the same cell. It includes the following systems:

  • a TORRESTOOL® Universal Holding Fixture for supporting the part on place while the shape check up process takes place.
  • a Laser Radar system for contour checking located underneath the a TORRESTOOL® running below its structure throughout the overall installation cell.
  • a 6+1 axes robot with an End-Effector for thickness checking using an ultrasonic measuring system.

It is a time saving process, fully automated, using the most advanced metrology technology. The overall system accuracy is guaranteed by the TORRESTOOL® subsystem (+/- 0.05 mm in Z axis.) and by the non contact technology utilized on the implementation of the solution.

The TORRESCLIP has been specially designed for High Speed and fully automatic process to assemble the clips to the fuselage or wing skins.

 

 

PRECISION, FLEXIBILITY AND SPEED

The TORRESCLIP has been specially designed for High Speed and fully automatic process to assemble the clips to the fuselage or wing skins.
 

The TORRESCLIP is a unique machine designed to locate, set up and bond the clips to the fuselage skin on an accurate, flexible and fast manner.
 

It is a modular concept, based on our well proven vertical TORRESTOOL® Universal Holding Fixture system.
 

The cell includes, as an addition to actual clip installation system, a vertically set up gantry to drill holes on the clips after they are bonded to the skins.
 

Also, an advanced HMI system for easy machine operation is within the scope of the machine.
 

A postprocessor for part program creation is optionally available.

The system provides the highest production rates and the most accurate results when it comes to riveting on either a semiautomatic or fully automatic CNC mode.

 

 

TORRES RIVETING

The TORRES RIVETING SYSTEM provides the highest production rates and the most accurate results when it comes to riveting on either a semiautomatic or fully automatic CNC mode.

 

A specific application of the TORRES RIVETING SYSTEM is the highly successful and well proven Riveting Machine for trailing edges of elevators, rudders, flaps and other similar components for different types of aircraft models.

 

The system is able to rivet different type of materials stack, which is typical on the above families of components.

 

The machine includes a the material thickness measuring system, rivet selection depending on the material thickness.

 

Optionally it can be provided with a totally integrated TORRESTOOL® Universal Holding Fixture, to boost the solution degree of flexibility and the avoidance of dedicated tooling requirements.

 

Also a part distortion measuring system as well as a part distortion compensation system is a feature of the machine.

 

The TORRES RIVETING SYSTEM has a highly sophisticated built in executive software package (HMI) to allow an extremely easy machine operation and maintenance.

 

Optionally, a postprocessor for the machine can be provided to generate the part program.

TORRES WELDING

The TORRESWELDING is a world’s unique piece of equipment. It has been developed aiming to the substitution, at certain aircraft fuselage sections, of the traditional riveting process to join the stringers to the skins. This joint is made by means of a unique laser welding process.

 

The TORRESWELDING includes two high power laser resonators, which laser beams are brought to the machine welding head separately, so that the stringer is actually welded to the skin using both laser beams, one at each side of the stringer, simultaneously.

 

The machine is capable of working on both single and double curvature panels.

 

The system provides significant productivity advantages, about 10 times faster process than the conventional riveting, as well as overall aircraft improvement by reducing a remarkable 15% the panel weight.
