Aircraft Wheel Inspection System – The Veescan

Automatic eddy current NDT inspection systems for aircraft wheel inspection as per applicable standards (ABS, Allied Signal, BF Goodrich, Messier, Dunlop).

The Veescan offers a High performance system for Wheels and Brakes Shops, capable of high production rates and allowing inspections with adjustable speed within a range. The Veescan allows operation with high frequency probes. The wheel is centred on the rotating table with no additional tools to ensure centring.

The systems are supplied with a PC for control and recording of the different parameters required for each different aircraft wheel. The systems are also supplied with the latest Eddy Current equipment; EtherNDE Aerocheck Plus which can be easily removed to allow the complementary manual inspection with surface probes, in specific areas, and the bore inspection with rotors.

An aluminium alloy reference cylinder, with an EDM notch, is used on the system. This cylinder turns at a speed which depends on the particular set up; rotating speed of the table and the wheel diameter (the calibration with the reference notch is always performed at the same speed as the relative probe to wheel speed, avoiding multiple different reference cylinders, and/or the need to use reference aircraft wheels, thus not affecting production speeds).

For the different production needs, the range of standard aircraft wheel inspection systems includes:

The Veescan

The Veescan is designed to lift the wheel and has a universal automatic adaptor that uses the wheel inertia to centre it.

Veescan offers an integrated roller tray for easy manoeuvrability and integration into a conveyor system.

Veescan can test wheels up to 900mm diameter.

The Veescan is designed with an adjustable-height Control Panel for operator comfort and can be positioned at a convenient distance from the main machine.

The Control Panel can also be fixed to the Veescan using a moveable arm.

Open on three sides, the Veescan offers easy wheel loading as standard.
