iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

DTS is a new innovation aimed at solving a specific problem in aerospace assembly related to connecting ribs and fuselage parts. The purpose of this device is to speed up the workflow and reduce the need for a highly-skilled operator by increasing the accuracy rate. The product consists of a detection unit and a drilling unit; the former unit uses ultrasound technology to detect the location of a hole on the outside of the fuselage, while the latter locks on to automatically drill a second corresponding hole from the inside.

The design of the DTS system differs from all other submitted works through well-thought-out details and an easily understandable presentation.
