Aircraft components are manually loaded into the holding fixture in batches of one. The Operator selects the part number on the HMI and initiates the cycle with a push button. The robot approaches the part and waits for a signal from the ultrasonic acquisition software. The Operator sets up the ultrasonic equipment and releases the robot to perform the inspection. The robot approaches the part with a laser sensor and calculates a position offset based upon the part’s measured location. The robot begins the raster scan of the part with the positional offsets applied to the program points. Upon completion of the inspection process, the robot returns to a SAFEHOME position, and the Operator unloads the part.
