GURUCAD has specialized in realisation of Jigs & Tools Projects for Airbus, Boeing and Lufthansa Technik as end-customers.

We are using Airbus methods (Handbuch 81T – Skeleton Method CATIA V5, CATIAV4 and ccd) and Boeing methods (use of skeleton method in CATIA V5, build of FEM simplified models, 2D DIN Drawings)

GURUCAD develops innovative Jigs & Tools for aerospace industry:

  • Robot technology with modular end-effectors (end-effectors for drilling and riveting composite structures)
  • Riveting tools and systems for large rivet systems (stationary or robot-guided)
  • Drilling, riveting and fastening tools (drilling masks, supports)
  • Assembly concepts jigs including simulation
  • Positioning systems
  • Highly flexible and fully automatic assembly/production lines
  • Simulation and testing devices
  • Feeding and handling of components
  • Service and maintenance tools
  • Machines and equipment for machining and finishing new materials (CFK and Glare)
  • Jigs for installation of large equipments inside the aircraft cabin
  • Jigs for assembling aircraft parts and assemblies
  • Transportation Jigs for air, sea & road transportation of aircraft sections, wings or vertical tail plane
  • Pressing tools
  • Welding and positioning jigs & fixtures
  • Clamping jigs for machining
  • Inspection jigs
  • Cutting jigs
  • CNC tooling
  • Machining fixtures

We are having also extensive experience in manufacturing this allow us to provide our customers with a reliable partner with deep technical and production know-how.

GURUCAD delivers in the area of Jigs & Tools Design:

  • 3D Design by using aerospace standard CAD tools (Preliminary - Conceptual, Detail - Manufacturing Design)
  • 3D Catalogs creation in CATIA V5/V4 or other CAD system for standard, profiles and company specific parts
  • 3D Templates Catalogs creation in CATIA V5/V4 for intelligent Jigs & Tools components
  • 2D drawings generation (manufacturing, assembly and installation drawings acc. aviation or customer standard - ISO/DIN)
  • Product Documentation (Technical Documentation)
  • Integration/Data Migration
  • Clash/clearance/segregation detection (automated via our suite of aerospace tools)
  • Visualization of entire Jigs & Tools assemblies(3D data reduction, merging of 3D data)
  • Release of complete 3D/2D/BOM inside customer PDM System (SAP, Primes, Enovia VPM, Taksy, Teamcenter, Smarteam)
  • Feasibility studies concerning different types of Jigs & Tools configurations and used materials
  • Design deviations creation
  • Implementation of weight reduction measures for Jigs & Tools structure (implementation of structural modifications acc. to FEM results)

For the Design Workpackages we conduct in-house, we use the following software:

  • GURUCAD Tools (CATIA V5 Power Copy for Primary/Secondary Structure, Clash/Visualization Tools, CATIA V5 macros/UDF...)
  • CATIA V5 and Q-Checker
  • CATIA V4
  • SolidWorks

In order to meet your requirements, we are also capable of using other software, as needed:

  • ProEngineer
  • Unigraphics
  • SolidEdge
