FMI Monolithic Design & Build ProjectWingtip Assembly

FMI was responsible as the primary design and build company FMIs machining concept was to utilize our single spindle BO-KO 6 axis with a nutating head, along with a 45 degree tool There are 3 set ups for the Monolithic frame design to complete machining, opposed to 60 multiple part set ups for machined and sheet metal details in the original design configuration The FMI Monolithic Design reduced the manufacturing lead time by 4 weeks, approximately a 65% lead-time reduction

Wingtip Assembly FMI Monolithic Machining

There are 2 design configurations, one with a logo light and one without The FMI Monolithic Design reduced the assembly from 60 machined and sheet metal details to 9 machined components Original Assembly time was reduced by 83% from 350 hrs to 60 hrs
