|JEC World Composites Show & Conferences, formerly known as JEC Europe, starts
today in Paris and brings together more than 1,300 companies of the composite industry.
Tecnatom shares stand with its French subsidiary M2M, and will show its wide range of
inspection systems based on robots for aero parts inspection and its own technology for
South Korea is the country of honor invited to this edition of Jec World, one of the most
active customers of Tecnatom in providing inspection equipment, where it already has
five implemented systems.
Paris, March 8th 2016.- Tecnatom attends one more edition of JEC World Composites Show
& Conferences, the European meeting in the field of composites par excellence which this year
celebrates its first edition worldwide. More than 1,300 companies from over 100 countries are
attending the event from today until next Thursday at Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center.
The Spanish company shares booth with M2M, one of the two French subsidiaries of the
Group, located at the Spanish Pavilion (Hall 5A, stand C53).
On the occasion of the JEC World 2016, Tecnatom presents its wide range of inspection
equipment, including automated-robotized systems, and “in house” HW-SW technology which
enables the integration of the complete inspection process: teaching-probing, trajectories
generation, 3D simulation, acquisition, evaluation, reporting and control, in a unified
environment that can be operated by a single person.
The systems apply different UT techniques: TTU or PE, conventional or phased array
technology. Tecnatom is also a reference in what is already known as the future of the
application of ultrasonic inspection for composite material: the application of laser ultrasonic
technology (LUS). Other contactless techniques, as air coupling and dry-probes are already
included in some of the most recent Tecnatom developments. As complementary to the UT
techniques, Thermography and Artificial Vision Sensors are also implemented in some of the
M2M is also presenting the new Multi2000 version 8.0, released last October, and compatible
with 64-bit operating systems up to windows 8. It provides high speed composite inspection.
An improvement of the inspection speed up to 400mm/s has been obtained with a great pixel
resolution of 0.5x0.5mm including full Ascan storage.
One of the most active customers is South Korea, country of honor of JEC World 2016.
Tecnatom has supplied a Taurus twin robotic inspection system to Korean Aerospace
Industries (KAI), in addition to two big immersion tanks; the Spanish engineering has also
provided another twin robots system for water jet through transmission and PE inspections to
the Korean tech centre for research of composite materials, GNTP, and currently is
manufacturing another Taurus system based in two robots to be supplied to Songwol.
Tecnatom is a Spanish multinational engineering, present in 32 countries with over 50 years
experience in NDT. The company develops its own state-of-the-art technology in ultrasonic
inspection that is permanently updated and improved through R&D. Tecnatom Group has
established itself as a leading company in supplying inspection systems, equipment and
services mainly based on ultrasonics, Eddy current, thermography and other NDT techniques
in nuclear and aviation industry, among other markets.
Tecnatom Group has managed to position itself as a benchmark company in the supply of
inspection systems, providing its technology to Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, the
big four western aerospace companies, in addition to the Russian United Aircraft Corporation
(UAC) and the Asian COMAC. In addition to these major manufacturers Tecnatom systems
are found in many others Tier 1 and Tier 2, on four continents.
