Bombardier said it has begun installing semi-automated jigs at its new wing facility in Belfast to support assembly of the advanced composite wings for the CSeries. The jigs are being installed in the second phase of a new 600,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and assembly facility. The first phase, which will accommodate the fabrication of the composite components, was completed at the end of 2010.

β€œThe installation of the wing assembly jigs is another milestone that brings us a step closer to producing wings for the CSeries aircraft program,” said Bombardier VP, President and GM Michael Ryan, who pointed out that jigs are β€œhighly automated and will allow us to control the assembly of the wings with a high degree of precision.”
