Boeing 787 Dreamliner
North Charleston, South Carolina
After purchasing the Charleston facility for painting of their new 787 Dreamliner, Boeing selected Encore Automation, a TKS Industrial subsidiary, to provide advanced auto-finesse robots for automated sanding during their aerospace fuselage painting process.
Boeing has begun production of the two existing 787 models here. And it recently began assembling the largest Dreamliner, the 787-10, built exclusively in South Carolina. Encore's unique auto-finesse sanding system allows Boeing to scale production while controlling fuselage paint quality.
