COMAC, China’s largest passenger aircraft manufacturer, has once again placed its trust in Tecnatom with a new contract for the supply of ultrasonic inspection equipment. The Tecnatom proposal was the one most highly valued by the Chinese company, which selected our company from among several from across the world to provide state-of-the-art inspection systems for the Chinese manufacturer’s composites research centre in Beijing.Specifically, the system includes two robots mounted on linear tracks and capable of performing ultrasonic inspections by transmission (TTU) and pulse-echo, thereby incorporating up to 14 axes, this guaranteeing complete control of the parts. The flexibility of the robot-operated system supplied by Tecnatom allows the robots to work in collaboration (performing TTU inspections) or independently, performing inspections based on the pulse-echo technique. At the same time, the system includes an automatic tool changer aimed at enhancing the productivity of the inspection system, allowing the different headers or modules incorporated by the robots during the inspection process to be replaced automatically. Tecnatom will also supply its data acquisition and trajectories generation software packages, both designed in-house. This suite of software and hardware items constitutes one of the most innovative and efficient ultrasonic inspection data acquisition systems currently available on the market.

In 2010, our company gained the trust of COMAC, through our French subsidiary Metalscan, for the supply of another ultrasonic inspection system, also based on industrial robots, for the control of metallic and composite parts at the Chinese giant’s plant in Shanghai.This new contract with COMAC means renewed stimulus for the important business efforts that our company is making in China, within the framework of a strategy of internationalisation that is taking us onto those markets that present the greatest possibilities for growth.
