Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul

Maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) refers to any action, including tests, measurements, replacements, and adjustments, that helps to maintain or restore products, machinery, tooling, or plants to their working conditions. Planned, predictive, preventative, and corrective maintenance are the main forms of overhaul.

As structure engineers or maintenance managers, you are responsible for the integrity of parts, equipment, or infrastructure. You are in charge of characterizing and repairing defects according to the acceptance criteria detailed in the manufacturer’s manual. To do so, you have to find and apply the right repair methods or contact the OEM to determine if the measured data exceeds the acceptance criteria. Unreliable data and unrepeatable results complicate your work, as do user-dependent measurements. How can you characterize damages and take corrective actions if the measured data on the same structure differs from one operator to another? More importantly, how can you make the right repair decision knowing that important operational and safety issues are often at stake?

Creaform Solution

With Creaform’s metrology-grade 3D scanners, you can feel confident in the measured results. Data are now repeatable and reliable, regardless of the operator’s experience and skill. Thus, you can make the right repair decision and get the structure back on service quickly.

Efficient, versatile, OEM-approved, and simple 3D scanning tools and software are the solutions to fulfill your goals and overcome your challenges.

  • Efficiency:

    With the highest measurement rate, easy reporting and user independence, the time-to-useable data occurs in minutes, saving precious acquisition and analysis time.
  • Versatility:

    With advanced laser and optical technologies and limitless scanning volumes, 3D scanners can measure a variety of part sizes, materials, finishes, and difficult surfaces in different work environments and applications.
  • Industry standard:

    With the OEMs’ approval, Creaform technology is compliant with the service letter of the most important OEMs as well as being part of their official service equipment catalog.
  • Simplicity:

    With plug-and-play devices and user-friendly interfaces, operators take measurements quickly and reliably.

Design of an Engine Bay to Fit a Diesel Engine into a Gas-Powered Snowmobile

Integrating an industrial diesel engine into a gas-powered snowmobile chassis in order to reduce noise and eliminate emissions while maintaining or boosting speed and performance cannot be done properly without measuring extremely complex geometries with state-of-the-art technologies to get an accurate foundation and use the correct tolerances.

Design and Development of High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Designing high-performance motorcycles cannot be done without measuring the ergonomics and aerodynamics with state-of-the-art technologies, ultimately providing riders with a thrilling experience.

Building and Testing High-Performance Street and Offroad Sport Motorcycles

Building high-performance motorcycles requires race-proven parts controlled by state-of-the-art technologies that enable riders to enjoy a thrilling experience.

Inspection for Machining Better Castings and Forgings

Producing parts involves machining raw castings and forgings. Specifically, the surfaces with important mechanical functions require machining. To optimize machining and ensure better quality, these critical areas must have enough material; otherwise, mechanical contacts might be defective, and tolerances might not be met.

Design and Manufacturing of a Steering Wheel for a Formula SAE Car

Formula SAE is a student competition in which university students from around the world design, manufacture, and test third-scale, Formula 1-style vehicles. These FSAE teams are not only judged on the dynamic performance of their vehicle, but also the engineering sophistication and innovation their racing cars exhibit.

How can Automotive Part Manufacturers Improve Productivity, Perform More Inspections Faster and with More Information

In the automotive industry, parts that comprise a complete car body are made by sheet metal stamping. These parts, which are all manufactured separately and punched in several stages, are welded together to form the final assembly. How can manufacturers make sure that automotive parts that are produced separately will fit together to form the final car body?
