aircraft fuselageFor over a century, Washington State aerospace innovators have been pioneering new materials and methods for manufacturing commercial aircraft. The future of advanced manufacturing belongs to those who design and build robots that will populate the factories. MTorres, a Spanish aerospace company, is developing the next generation of robotics in their Everett, Washington facility. Using carbon-fiber materials and robotic methods the engineers plan to create complex fuselages in one piece including integral structural elements without rivets and fasteners. Once again, Washington State aerospace engineers are transforming an industry. Read more in The Seattle Times.
