Tools of the Trade
Some tools are used in automotive repair, construction, and other industries, while others are highly specialized with a single purpose or function specific to the aircraft assembly process.
Our “Tools of the Trade” exhibit displays an assortment of actual tools that are used by Airbus in the Mobile Manufacturing Facility to assemble the A320 Family and the A220 Family of aircraft. Visitors can also utilize the touchscreen control panel to watch videos of specific tools being used on the job.
