Bron Template™ Features:
The Bron Template™ is a new Adhesive Mylar Technology that greatly improves Aerostructure assembly operations.
Digital Catia** CAD graphics are precision-printed onto the Bron Template™ film at full-scale (1 : 1) – then verified to aerospace industry “mylar” tolerances of +/- .020” over any 10” interval up to 120” x 50”. Precision tolerances of less than +/-.005” are possible within areas up to 30” x 30” square.
The Bron Template™ puts Zero Defects within reach. The Bron Template™ is like having the engineering blueprint on the part. Defines fastener locations as well as the size and type of fasteners to install.
In 2013, zero defects were reported at a major Boeing supplier using Bron Template™ technology.
* Bron Templates™ have also be used on cured composite surfaces – spec-approval pending.
** Catia is a product of Dassault Industries and the CAD tool preferred by Boeing.
