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.

3D Modeling For Phased-array Inspections In Aerospace Industry

To ensure the safety of passengers and proper maintenance of equipment, inspections of surface impact damage on aircraft parts and structure must be performed.

Developing, manufacturing, and inspecting a casting of superior quality in less time

Discover how 3D scanning technologies helps casting inspections and casting manufacturing. Get strategies to improve your casting product development process.

Aerospace Maintenance

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.

Replacing headers on a main steam piping system at a power generating facility

Replacing headers on a main steam piping system at a power generating facility is challenging. Often, CAD models are no longer available. Therefore, engineers have to design the replacement parts by dealing only with the physical parts.

Power Turbine Component Analysis - 3D Scanning

No matter if the objective is to inspect, repair or modify power generation turbine components, the challenges remain the same: access to the components and stability of the measurement setup. The components that require measurement like impeller blades, guide vanes or casings are always located in tight spaces with difficult access.

3D Modeling For Phased-array Inspections In Power Generation And Energy

Power generation components and structures must be inspected to assess the level of degradation and remaining service life. Power generation organizations are facing mounting challenges of inspecting complex components that are part of a very intricate assembly and cannot be taken out for inspection purposes.
