CHOOSING THE RIGHT VIDEOSCOPE MATERIAL FOR THE AIRCRAFT SECTOR
Endoscopy in aeronautics
An endoscope for better efficiency during video checks! Aeronautical endoscopy is a valuable contribution to the accuracy and efficiency of the video controls inherent in the industry. Coming from the medical sector, the endoscope has quickly become an indispensable tool for aviation maintenance technicians.
A precious saving of time and money
Endoscopes have somewhat revolutionized maintenance in the aeronautics sector: immobilization of the aircraft is no longer necessary and maintenance is now possible in anticipation, preventively.
Before the arrival of the aeronautical endoscopy, it was essential to disassemble the engine and deposit it to carry out an inspection. Now, aircraft engine manufacturers - the most expensive part of the aircraft and involving the most maintenance - design them themselves in anticipation of endoscopy, anticipating access to so-called sensitive reactor areas. The possibility of "under wing" inspection enabled by industrial endoscopy equipment represents a significant gain in time and therefore money.
Why carry out an industrial inspection thanks to aeronautical endoscopy?
An aviation technician is alerted to the need for a repair when a wear indicator in the engine appears. At the observation of this wear, it was previously necessary to remove and refit the engine, which took at least half a day. From now on, thanks to the visual analysis offered by the aeronautical endoscopy, the control will be carried out in one hour maximum. Faster, but also more efficient because the endoscopic camera allows accurate assessments of possible damage to be found, penetrating close to each engine parts.
APPLICATIONS TO BE INSPECTED IN AERONAUTICS:
