Pulse-line section 15/21, Airbus A318 - A321

For the first time, the structural assembly of Airbus fuselages was to take place using pulse-line production. For this, a new assembly line had to be developed. MCE developed a roughly 50-metre-long production line with six consecutive assembly stations at the Hamburg location. The individual stations are connected by way of a geometry carrier. The system features an accuracy tolerance of max. 0.2 millimetre
