Increasing production rates in aircraft industry lead to an urgent demand for fast and quality assured manufacturing processes. In particular this is the case for structures made of carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP), because of its special features handling and controlling of the material is still more complex and time consuming compared to metals. The solutions presented in this paper are dealing with the automation of joining and machining process chains related to large CFRP fuselage shells, showing how to handle the geometrical deviations of parts and achieve sufficiently precise positioning and path of motions using lightweight, cost-efficient and easily reconfigurable plant set-ups.
