Project Summary Project Information

Link for Project Readiness Package.

Project Background:

  • Commercial aircraft engine nozzles currently require an operation during production as a preventative measure against possible rust development during long term storage.
    • To combat against rust, these fuel nozzles go through a process involving oil being flowed through the product at a specific programmed pressure and duration.

Current State:

  • Operators manually attach and remove nozzles to the lubrication fixture using varying couplers for this large volume oepration (approximately 300 tests per day)
  • Repetitive back bending, wrist twisting actions pose ergonomic issues.
  • Oil mist exposure also proves hazardous to operator

Project Goals:

  • Automation of Lubrication System for CFM 56 Fuel Nozzle:
    • Reduce Cycle Time: <=30 Seconds
    • Reduce Change-over time:<= 2 minutes
    • Reduce Ergonomic Issues: Reduce /eliminate wrist twisting, back bending actions
