Aerospace

AerospaceAerospace is, with automotive, the most demanding industry of all; when there are lives at stake, quality cannot be left to chance. Backed with a strong reputation for accuracy and reliability, Creaform has been working with leading aeronautics companies such as Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce and CAE, and we were able to position ourselves as a performing and trustworthy aeronautics provider of 3D engineering services and portable 3D measurement devices, that can be used for applications such as:

  • Quality Control/inspection
  • Aerodynamics/stress analysis
  • OEM and legacy part reengineering
  • Reverse engineering (assembly/MRO, gas turbines, engine bays, nacelles, cockpits)
  • MRO and damage assessment
  • Prototype, tooling and mold adjustment
  • Design and engineering of aircraft components and assembly

3D Modelling for Phased-Array Inspection - Aerospace

Service aircrafts and their components and structures must be inspected to assess the level of degradation and remaining service life. Aircraft manufacturers and air carriers are faced with the challenge of inspecting complex components (ex.: gas turbines, engine bays, nacelles, cockpits) that are part of a very intricate assembly and that can’t be “taken out" to be inspected. To solve this issue, the industry usually resorts to the phased-array inspection method.

Assisted Assembly - Assessing As-Built Conditions

Assisted Assembly - Assessing As-Built Conditions

When making complex or critical assemblies, it is imperative to assess the “as-built” condition of each component in order to perform adequate simulations. Based on such simulations or virtual assembly operations, proper design adjustments and pre-calculations of assembly positions can be made and the need for new adjustment parts can be determined.

Assisted Assembly for Manufacturing Processes

Assisted Assembly for Manufacturing Processes

In complex or critical manufacturing processes, it is essential to know at any time and for the duration of the assembly process, the position of each part in relation to the others.

Maintenance - MetraSCAN 3D

Maintenance - MetraSCAN 3D

Reactors and turbines are costly, essential pieces of equipment that usually have to undergo regular maintenance. The high cost of such equipment justifies repairs at times complex for problems such as deterioration. To determine the repairs required, warping or loss of material due to wear is to be precisely measured.

Part-to-CAD Inspection

Part-to-CAD Inspection

All parts on a production line are subject to 3-dimensional verification that can be done using either the systematic method or by random sampling. In aerospace, quality control is usually quite comprehensive and requires a dense sampling of comparison points, especially on free-form or complex shapes.

Testing and Adjustment of Design Tooling

Testing and Adjustment of Design Tooling

At the start of a new production line, design tools (molds, jigs, racks, presses, etc.) should be periodically inspected and adjusted as part of preventive maintenance or before any product drift, to deliver the expected level of performance.

Testing, Adjustment and Shape Analysis of Design Tools

When starting a new production line, for preventive maintenance operations or in case of production drifts, design tools (moulds, jigs, frames, presses, etc.) should be regularly tested and adjusted to deliver expected levels of performance.
