IMITec Remote Inspection Robot
IMITec

Eddy Current Measurement--by Robot!

MRO Links Snapshot: 
Remote Collaboration Technology, April 2020

As part of our focus on non-destructive testing (NDT), IMITec has created a robot that can be used for remote inspections of your aircraft, finding dents and cracks in a fraction of the time of other methods. The robot moves on ferromagnetic rails and can be guided easily to any area of interest. It then uses eddy current measurement data to determine the extent of any damage. A typical dent inspection takes minutes instead of hours, resulting in a safer aircraft back in the air more quickly. This device works on aircraft of all types, and we also plan a version with an ultrasonic probe, perfect for detecting delamination on aircraft made of composite materials.

We expect this product to be ready for market in late 2020. Contact us for more information!
