Project Description

Boeing’s Skins and Spars division Need a way of communicating part information during one of their finishing operations.  Currently, symbols are written on components with permanent marker.  This information is lost as soon as the process begins.  We were asked to create a device that will engrave these symbols into the aluminum components so that they will last until the operation is complete.  Due to Boeing’s high standards of quality, these markings must be engraved at very precise depths.  


Design Spesifications

  • The device must be self containd and portable
  • Egrave to depths of 0.001 to 0.006 innces in 0.001 inch incraments
  • Accurate to ± 0.0002 inces
  • Draw numbers corresponding to cutting depths
