dentCHECK is empowering the world's airlines & MROs in their quest for more reliable and efficient dent-mapping & reporting
KONSTANZ, Germany and RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
dentCHECK, the world's only handheld portable, completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR, is now used by the world’s leading commercial, cargo and defense MROs. Delivering real-time ‘go/no-go’ answers, the tool significantly reduces dent-mapping and reporting times, compared to traditional manual methods that use depth-gauges and calipers. At last month’s 61st annual A4A NDT Forum, a leading US airline presented a case-study further reinforcing the well-established value of dentCHECK for aviation maintenance operations.
"We are proud to empower the world’s airlines and MROs in their quest for more reliable and efficient dent-mapping and reporting ", said Arun Chhabra, CEO, 8tree. "It is rewarding to see dentCHECK’s user-centric design, intuitive 1-button operation and AR-enabled results resonating so strongly with the global aviation maintenance industry. This design approach allows us to empower users of all skill levels with ‘go/no-go’ answers, not just data. At the upcoming MRO Europe 2018 in Amsterdam, we will share a sneak-peak into several new capabilities that expand the dentCHECK eco-system and enhance operational efficiency for airlines and MROs.”
Over the past two years, Airbus has published multiple approvals in its Tool Equipment Manuals (TEMs) for the express purpose of dent-mapping on metallic aero-structures and composite cabin floor-boards. dentCHECK also expedites blend-out remaining thickness measurement of uniform thickness panels as per procedures outlined in Airbus’ SRM 51-11-00 and SRM 51-11-13. During this same period, another major aircraft OEM has published a Service Letter recognizing the use of 3D scanning tools, such as dentCHECK, for dent-mapping on all of its commercial aircraft family types.
Multi-OEM acceptance of dentCHECK has propelled the tool’s adoption by airlines/MROs globally. Detailed case-studies published by TAP-M&E and easyJet, as well as news from Airbus’ Flightline and Zeppelin, demonstrate that dentCHECK drastically reduces inspection and reporting times by up to 90%. As such, it empowers aircraft maintenance operations with first-of-its-kind objective and consistent dent-inspection and blend-out results. This shortens aircraft Turn-around-Time (TaT), which further reduces lost revenues and very directly improves operational efficiency for airlines. dentCHECK enhances safety through an improved understanding of airframe reliability.
