Custom Freezer-Rated Automated Storage System for Composite Aircraft Components
The Boeing Company approached Bastian Solutions with requirements for a custom, automated vertical storage unit to store pre-plied, uncured, composite laminates on aluminum storage trays in a freezer operating at -20°F.
Bastian’s solution to this project was a two tower vertical lifting system with a custom, pivoting carriage between the two towers. Our design was required to hold these parts within a .1” flatness tolerance and the entire system had to function inside a freezer, requiring us to use special freezer-rated components. This custom storage system is also built to withstand earthquakes since the facility is located on the west coast.
