Long Description:

Broetje-Automation is the world‘s leading expert for the specialized production processes in the aerospace industry. Our team of 650 employees located at our sites in Germany, in the USA, France, UK and China designs and implements highly-efficient solutions for the assembly of aircrafts. „Composed to compete“ is our promise to continuously expand our process expertise. But above all we promise you - our customers in the aerospace industry - customized solutions for the ongoing optimization of your production processes and thus your competitive edge that are based on globally proven standards.  

  • Our guiding principles are:
  • Personal and reliable cooperation
  • Performance orientation as an expression of our customer relationship
  • Enthusiasm for innovation in our search for optimum solutions
  • Continuous advancement for process and performance optimization
  • Global experience

The harmonious interplay of all of the instruments is as important for complex production processes as it is for a symphony. When an aircraft is built, large components such as fuselage panels, horizontal and vertical stabilizers and wings are moved. Moreover, these components need to be precisely machined and exactly aligned during the assembly process. The stringent quality requirements in aerospace demand a high repeat accuracy of processes. These specific technical requirements and the need for economic process efficiency place high demands on you - and on us.

Products + Services:

  • Planning and simulation of production processes and layouts
  • Design, manufacturing, realization of machines and assembly lines
  • Development of industrial production processes for Composites
  • Facilities and systems for the production of composite components
  • Service and customer support for production optimization worldwide

Competence Description:

The performance portfolio of Broetje-Automation therefore comprises the entire know-how about processes, manufacture, joining and automation relevant in the aviation industry. We are just as familiar with processing composite materials for weight reduction purposes as we are with robotics. This is how we compose sustainably efficient, turnkey production solutions for all types of aircraft: ‘Composed to compete’. As an integrator we harmonise production processes and equipment to make highly productive assembly lines with which you can set the tone among the competition. Leading the way in aircraft design: the perfect processing of high-tech materials. Our fully automated unit for the continuous manufacture of curved threedimensional preforms for aircraft structures received the coveted Innovation Award at the JEC Composites Show in Paris in 2011. 

Broetje-Automation has already convinced the jury of the JEC Europe 2015 Innovation Award with the world premier of STAXX COMPACT and received the prestigeous award in the category “Process”. Thanks to its multi-line fiber placement, four-axes orientation and unique line integration capability, the STAXX production system offers utmost flexibility and maximum material savings.

More innovations: with our specialist machinery for handling and positioning composites, the latest materials are reliably and efficiently processed. Our ‘automated dry fibre placement robot cell’ also has a lot of potential.
