SmartDENT 3D Aircraft Surface Inspection

SmartDENT 3D Aircraft Surface Inspection Software

Creaform has now released a fast and accurate NDT solution for 3D assessments of dent damages located on aircraft surfaces. Their solution includes a HandySCAN 3D™ scanner and SmartDENT 3D™ surface inspection software.

Safety is of paramount importance in the Aviation industry and this is dependent on a growing worldwide maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) industry. Newly manufactured aircraft components also undergo rigorous inspection before they are assembled into the aircraft body itself. NDT procedures allow inspectors to test the integrity of parts and bonds, sometimes in areas of the plane that would otherwise be un-testable unless the structure was disassembled to gain access. Additionally damage that is too small to be visually detected can be found. NDT plays a vital role in keeping air travel one of the safest modes of transportation. New composite materials create new inspection challenges to the industry, and NDT is at the forefront of material quality control.

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. It offers a guided workflow approach to simplify the measurement extraction of 3D scan data to get exactly the dimensions required for assessment of in-service airplanes. The goal of the software is to greatly reduce operators’ impact on measurements results and shorten the time to generate final reports.

Features & Benefits:

  • Guided workflow
  • Measures length and width of dent damages, closest neighbours, closest internal structure, maximum depth and maximum depth of dent to closest internal structure, etc.
  • Assesses the ratio of maximum depth on length & width
  • Offers an easy visualization with colormaps for all features
  • Step-by-step process to perfectly bridge the gap between data acquisition and reporting operations
  • Instant, comprehensive reporting
  • Speed: 80 times faster than the pit gauge technique! It’s a fast and reliable airplane surface damage inspection tool to get aircrafts back in service.
  • Flexibility: Versatile software that can be used for corrosion and dents.
  • TRUsimplicity: Easy-to-use software that requires no advanced metrology skills. It enables users to address real applications.
  • TRUaccuracy: The most accurate device regardless of instabilities in the environment or the users’ expertise. It provides reliable, accurate, and repeatable results, which are traceable for future analysis.
  • TRUportability: Portable devices that gives you the opportunity to assess on-site damages.
