Ultrasonic Inspection in Aerospace industries.
Aerospace Industry stands for reliability and highest safety standards. It is a cost intensive business. Grounding time for failure analysis and maintenance of an Aircraft is highly influencing profits.
The inspection efficiency is most important. Therefore all inspection procedures are laid down in the aircraft maintenance manuals.
Flaw Detectors provided by United NDT are designed for highest performance, ease of operation and calibration. They are used for ultrasonic thickness measurement and flaw detection in the manufacturing process for aerospace parts or during maintenance and overhaul. Since the introduction of the Ultrasonic Phased Array technology, conventional ultrasonic testing is more and more replaced, as the inspection process is much faster and more reliable. One of the problems with the Phased Array technique is, that it sometimes requires extensive time to set up the equipment for testing. This is different with United NDT Phased Array products. They are known for their ease of use and fast and easy calibration. Furthermore these instrument allow 100% data capture and review of the complete testing procedure as well as further evaluation.
Here are some of the applications in aerospace industries:
- Thickness measurement on the aircraft body and window elements
- Flaw detection on all metal parts (landing gear, aircraft engine, turbine discs etc.)
- Inspection of nonmetal parts (e.g. testing of composites on de-lamination and inspection of impact damages)
In general United NDT equipment is applied during the manufacturing process and during maintenance in the aerospace industries.
