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.
