Aircraft Component Inspection


Precision and reliability are key in the aerospace industry. Every day, LK CMMs from Nikon Metrology run detailed inspection on small to mid sized landing gear, actuator assembly, breaking system and thrust reverser components.

When size really matters, Nikon Metrology offers truly flexible and reliable gantry CMMs. In addition to high accuracy with maximum volume, gantry CMMs support a variety of probing solutions, including touch-trigger and laser scanning sensors.

For supersize fuselage, wing or engine parts, leading aircraft manufacturers count on Laser Radar and iGPS, two revolutionary solutions based on innovative laser technologies. Both solutions offer accurate and contactless inspection capabilities that are used within a wide variety of large volume measurement and inspection applications: aircraft fuselage section analysis, tool assembly and alignment inspection as well as the inspection of aircraft engine inlet cowls and checking the geometry of aircraft wing.

Onsite inspection of cracks or fatigue issues on aerospace components is possible with a portable microscope. ShuttlePix is the ideal tool to investigate large objects or components that cannot taken to the lab for analysis.
