AIRBUS specific kits for maintenance repair of TaperLok fastener holes.
Maintenance repair of fastener TaperLok holes has always required specialized operators to avoid machining errors that can be detrimental to the structure.
At the request of Airbus, SOA has developed a specific TaperLok Manual repair Kit which is very
easy to use and allows any even non-specialized operator to carry out repairs. TaperLok reamers are used for as tapered fasteners for primary structure assemblies.
The specific Kit and SOA repair procedure have been qualified by Airbus, incorporated into the various Structure Repair manuals (SRM) and are now used throughout the world by all airlines and MROs for AIRBUS maintenance.
You will find below the link to SOA tooling table (XLS format) to define which SOA kits to use based on existing TaperLok diameters and thhe ones to use as Oversizes.
