Creaform, manufacturer of automated portable 3D measurement solutions, has announced the launch of the HandySCAN Aeropack, a 3D scanning package that can solve quality control issues in the aviation industry. For example, it can be used to assess damage caused by hailstorms or aircraft incidents, or to inspect flaps and ailerons. The HandySCAN Aeropack can also be used for reverse engineering, maintenance and repair, as well as the design of hard to source parts.
The HandySCAN Aeropack solution includes:
HandySCAN 3DMC: The aerospace industry's leading metrology-class portable 3D scanner is designed to acquire accurate, repeatable and reliable measurements, and scan complex surfaces and parts of all sizes, even in harsh environments such as aviation hangars and workshops.
· SmartDENT 3DMC: aircraft surface inspection software for evaluating aircraft flaps, ailerons, fuselage, etc.
· VXinspect ™: A dimensional inspection software module for quality control processes and inspection reports.
· VXmodelMC: a software module for post-processing and finalizing 3D scan data in any CAD software.
Intuitive and user-friendly for operators of all skill levels, the HandySCAN Aeropack helps optimize the efficiency of quality control and reverse engineering processes, reducing user influence over measurement results. and speeding up the creation of final reports or CAD designs. Unparalleled in efficiency, the HandySCAN Aeropack would make no compromises on diagnostic results and safety.
The HandySCAN 3D is part of the Airbus Technical Equipment Manual, referred to in its Structural Repair Manual. It is also part of Boeing's letters of service and can thus be used to record the physical attributes of dents on aircraft, for all Boeing commercial aircraft.
“The aerospace industry faces growing challenges due to accelerated innovation by manufacturers, stringent regulatory standards and concerns about passenger safety, which are driving up costs for downtime and profitability targets,” explains Jérôme. -Alexandre Lavoie, product manager at Creaform. Since the HandySCAN Aeropack has been designed with this in mind, airline companies can finally overcome these difficulties with our solution. "
