Products and Services

The Broetje-Automation products cover the entire process, production and automation expertise for aircraft production. We are just as familiar with composite materials as we are with metallic and multi-material stacks. We use robotics as well as traditional machinery to automate your production.
We have implemented Cobot-solutions for aerospace-grade processes (e.g. drilling, riveting, sanding, sealing and many more). We have designed the first aerospace robot system: The PowerRACe.
To make your factory ready for the future we provide mobile systems based on our in-house universal carrier system – an autonomous guided vehicle concept designed for machine integration – a breakthrough for future lights-off factories.
We combine this knowledge for sustainably efficient, turnkey solutions for all types of aircraft. As an integrator we harmonize production processes and equipment to make highly productive assembly lines with which you can stay ahead in the world market.
PowerRACe - The Aerospace Robot

The POWER RACe (Robot Assembly Cell) is a robotic system specifically designed for the needs of the aerospace industry. The automated positioning system performs multiple high precision, high-force processes in one machine (e.g. drilling, riveting, milling).
With up to 50% reduced drill times and 40% higher overall performance, the PowerRACe is the ideal system to automate complex industrial manufacturing processes - suitable even on lower rate programs.
