NDT surface inspection for the aerospace mro industry

NDT surface inspection for the aerospace mro industry

Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) companies, aircraft manufacturers and airlines that perform NDT inspections for in-service aircraft maintenance have increasing pressure to complete their assessments in the fastest way possible without sacrificing accuracy. ln fact, the longer an airplane is grounded, the more airlines lose money.

Creaform's HandySCAN AEROPACK is an easy, fast, and accurate solution for MRO companies. It includes a HandySCAN 3D scanner and SmartDENT 3DTM, a surface inspection software developed specifically for critical aerospace applications. It also comes with other software to address all of your reverse engineering and quality control needs.

 

Applications

 

Hailstorms damage inspection

When an aircraft hits a hailstorm, MRO teams need to rely on a solution that enables them to quickly and accurately measure the impact to speed up repairs—and mitigate the negative ripple effects on future sales. Thanks to its remarkable versatility, operators can use the solution in any conditions, whether inside or outside, without sacrificing accuracy and reliability.

 

Flap and spoiler maintenance

Traditional, manual measurement methods for inspecting flaps and spoilers, such as pit gauges, can bog down productivity. Operators need a modern solution so that they won’t waste time searching the deepest points per dent or scanning a part’s entire geometry.

 

Aircraft incidents analysis

When an aircraft experiences hard landing or other damaging incidents, MRO teams must use a solution that can help them analyze any type of damage on any type of surface or texture. Teams need a solution to perform thorough analyses and any component shape, size or surface finish with confidence.

 

Regularly scheduled maintenance

Operators who are responsible to put the aircraft back into service need a tool to validate if a component is within acceptance criteria after rework is completed. Oftentimes, MRO teams don’t have access to the CAD models of aircraft components, which means reverse engineering components becomes key.

 

 
Computer SmartDENT

SmartDENT 3D™

Aircraft surface 3D assessments software

SmartDENT 3D is the first dedicated 3D visualization software on the market designed for 3D assessments and characterization of dent damages located on aircraft surfaces. lt offers a guided workflow approach to simplify the measurement extraction of 3D scan data to get exactly the dimensions required for the assessment of in-service airplanes.

SmartDENT 3D greatly reduce operators' impact on measurements results and shortens the time to generate final reports.
