Complete automation solutions for CNC applications in airplane and engine manufacture were the focus of the Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) presentation at the Airtech 2006 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Siemens A&D was also showing for the first time a new 7 axis transformation for fibre and tape laying applications. Siemens say that there new 7 axis transformation enables programming in workpiece coordinates even with complex machine kinematics. This, in turn, enables machine concepts to be implemented for highly innovative fibre and tape laying applications that can produce complete fuselage segments on the basis of carbon fibre reinforced plastic materials.
