A challenge with robots in aerospace manufacturing applications is the need to work with very large parts. Robotic work cells can be up to 30 ft to 40 ft long and several stories high.

Robotics in Aerospace

Rob,  I agree with your comments. I'm sure that there have been plenty of robots used in aerospace mfg but there are significant opportunities moving ahead.  The size of the work cells definitely favors more manual labor than other industries but automation offers advantages as well.

Interesting, Al, that aerospace is adopting robots. In some ways it seems late, in other ways, it's surprising the industry is using robots at all. It will be interesting to see whether aerospace also adopts inspection robotics the way that automotive did.
