Abstract

Responding to unprecedented demands for its high capacity medium range series of airliners, a leading world aircraft manufacturer recently identified requirements for updating techniques employed in the production of certain major airframe components. To achieve corresponding reductions in inspection time on these components, LK Limited was asked to produce a co‐ordinate measuring machine that would be the largest of its type in the world.
