Mechanic and Machine: Boeing's Advanced Manufacturing Improves 777 Assembly

Behind the scenes of our factory of the future! Fuselage Automated Upright Build (FAUB) is a partnership of automation and manual work to assemble the forward and aft sections of the 777 fuselage.

Teams load and set the panels, then the robots are moved in to help install thousands of fasteners to connect the sections. Mechanics are able to move the robots and massive parts around on automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

That mobility and flexibility will allow FAUB to help manufacture all 777 models, including the upcoming 777X.
