C-130 Wing Drill

This is a fully automated drilling machine that drills approximately 15,000 holes on 4 different jigs per ship. It drills the holes in the forward and aft Wing Beam, left and right. The system was designed to use the existing tooling jigs which minimized the interuption to production and reduced the overall cost to about one fifth.  DSC designed a teach-tool that locates the proper hole location off of the old tooling (there was no CAD data for this part of the wing).  This tool generated the drilling program that has made all of the C-130 wings since January of 2008.
