Aircraft fuselage or wing damage

Products such as the 8tree dentCHECK are finding use with defence customers in Australia and New Zealand to help reduce the time it takes to map aircraft damage to report the damage condition to the aircraft manufacturer. Reduced time to map and report damage means lower maintenance costs for defence customers and a faster turnaround time on the ground for military aircraft.

Workshop maintenance and support applications

We have a number of customers in the Defence sector who are using measurement equipment such as optical comparators, CMMs and roundness measuring systems such as Taylor Hobson Talyrond for measuring, inspecting and reporting on components being manufactured as well as the maintenance of existing systems.

These products allow the defence departments and the support contract community to accurately produce and assure the quality of components manufactured in order to achieve high levels of equipment up-time and improvements in reliability.
