Short Brothers, a Bombardier Group company, is commissioning a £2.4 million ($3.82 million) automatic riveting machine with nine-axis control. The purpose-built GEMCOR A-2760, believed to be the first of its kind, will boost the company's fuselage-manufacturing capability and enable it to meet the riveting requirements of fuselages such as that of the Learjet 45, which Shorts builds.
