Company Rotable Repairs Ltd
Date 23.05.2016

Rotable Repairs prAircraft Wheel & Brake Specialists Rotable Repairs build on their recent workshop production improvements by purchasing a new Veescan H – Eddy Current Aircraft Wheel Inspection System.

The Veescan H is a Wheel Inspection System able to be configured with a wide choice of probes and provides the flexibility to select the system most compatible with the required workload. Teamed with a full choice of operation modes, the Veescan H maximises the probability of automated crack detection.

By the same token the new equipment has provided Rotable Repair’s NDT (Non Destructive Testing) department with the ability to provide customers with a more detailed inspection report and an increase in hub inspection capacity.

Chris Whitt, Deputy Chief Inspector said: “The new equipment gives us a competitive edge on reliability and compliments our current system by potentially increasing the amount of hub inspections carried out at one time. Eddy Current wheel inspection is widely accepted throughout the world as a rapid and reliable means of maintaining the integrity of aircraft wheels.”

The current NDT (Non Destructive Testing) team have internally supported Rotable Repairs by supplying accurate and detailed inspections for over 41 years combined.

In addition to the new equipment the Non Destructive Testing unit has been a part of a companywide improvement scheme to create additional space within the workshop, providing the inspection staff with an additional 40% increase in usable space.
