TECNATOM’S Robotic Systems at JEC World 2016: The Latest Technology For Aero‐parts Non Destructive Inspection

Tecnatom S.A.94, Madrid, Spain

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 nondestructive testing.

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 supplies.

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.
