Complex Needs - Standard for us.

An aeroplane is assembled with several hundred rivets and screws. In order to insert these connectors, it is necessary to drill through diverse material layers of the components. As the decrease in fuel consumption as well as in CO2 emissions is the aim, aeroplane components are made from titanium and aluminium but also from lightweight materials like CFK. Such precise drillings in complex material mixing packages claim technically highest requirements. To be able to fulfil these, well-known aircraft manufacturers like Airbus and Boeing rely on Lübbering drilling units - intelligent, technically completed systems with the most precise drilling results, exactly tailored to the individual needs of the aerospace industry.

Apart from pneumatic and electronic drilling units there is a variety of modular solutions which accelerate, improve or even make the drilling process possible at all. Take a look at these various solutions:

  • MQL System: It is used for drillings with inner tubes so that the cooling lubricant directly cools down the tool, at the hottest spot of the drilling
  • Micro Peck System "Sine-Feed": Long chips are broken with a sine like undulation and therefore finest chips are thrown off. One drilling – exactly like the other.
  • Automatic material identification: L.ADU determines itself the kind of material and coordinates the drilling speed simultaneously.Erste pneumatische High-Speed Advanced Drilling Units
  • Shorter drilling process: L.ADU determines itself when the drilling is finished and turns back directly. Regarding the large number of drillings this leads to an enormous time saving.

The standard programme of drilling systems, which is continuously extended in its functions, has been used for different applications in the aerospace industry since 1994.
From development of mechanical and electronic components through production of all assemblies up use and service, Lübbering offers complete systems which are exactly tailored to individual requirements.
