NDT SURFACE INSPECTION FOR THE AEROSPACE MRO INDUSTRY
NDT PIPELINE INSPECTION FOR OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY
Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) companies, aircraft manufacturers and airlines that perform NDT inspections for in-service aircraft maintenance have increasing pressure to complete their assessments in the fastest way possible without sacrificing accuracy. ln fact, the longer an airplane is grounded, the more airlines lose money.
Creaform's HandySCAN AEROPACK is an easy, fast, and accurate solution for MRO companies. It includes a HandySCAN 3D scanner and SmartDENT 3DTM, a surface inspection software developed specifically for critical aerospace applications. It also comes with other software to address all of your reverse engineering and quality control needs.
When pipeline operators look for an NDT service company, technology and quality of non-destructive testing services are key. In particular NDT technologies must help technicians perform inspections efficiently, without compromising on accuracy and highly reliable results.
Creaform has the most trusted NDT 3D scanning technology solutions for corrosion, denting (mechanical damage), and wrinkle analyses. Thanks to its 3D scanner bundle with Pipecheck software, service companies and pipeline operators can stick to planned budgets and timelines—all while ensuring pipeline integrity and public safety.
This unique 3D scanning technology and innovative software solution goes beyond standards and active regulations, offering fast field deployment, user-independent results, versatile geometry analysis, easy reporting, and a complete 3D visualization of internal and external surfaces.
HAILSTORMS DAMAGE INSPECTION
When an aircraft hits a hailstorm, MRO teams need to rely on a solution that enables them to quickly and accurately measure the impact to speed up repairs—and mitigate the negative ripple effects on future sales. Thanks to its remarkable versatility, operators can use the solution in any conditions, whether inside or outside, without sacrificing accuracy and reliability.

CREAFORM’s 3D SCANNER BUNDLE WITH PIPECHECK SOFTWARE: PROVEN NDT TECHNOLOGY FOR THE BEST QUALITY OF SERVICE
THE MOST ACCURATE PIPELINE ASSESSMENTS WITH NDT 3D SCANNERS
As the standard for portable metrology-grade 3D scanners, the HandySCAN 3D delivers accurate and repeatable results in all work conditions, whether under direct sunlight or in harsh environments. Not only can service companies fully trust HandySCAN 3D’s reliable data but they can also count on its speed to take measurements, deliver results, and complete inspection quickly and efficiently. The HandySCAN 3D is your go-to NDT solution for pipeline inspections.
FLAP AND SPOILER MAINTENANCE
Traditional, manual measurement methods for inspecting flaps and spoilers, such as pit gauges, can bog down productivity. Operators need a modern solution so that they won’t waste time searching the deepest points per dent or scanning a part’s entire geometry.
AIRCRAFT INCIDENTS ANALYSIS
When an aircraft experiences hard landing or other damaging incidents, MRO teams must use a solution that can help them analyze any type of damage on any type of surface or texture. Teams need a solution to perform thorough analyses and any component shape, size or surface finish with confidence.
THE FASTEST AND EASIEST NDT 3D SCANNER
The Go!SCAN 3D offers the fastest and easiest 3D experience for NDT technicians who perform pipeline inspections for different types of damage, particularly corrosion. The Go!SCAN 3D’s different positioning modes speed up setup times and accelerates field deployment. Thanks to this NDT 3D scanner, the time spent in the ditch is shortened, making it an ideal solution for service companies that want to gain a competitive advantage.
PIPECHECK SOLUTION: YOUR BEST ALLY AT ALL STAGES OF YOUR PIPELINE INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Unlike traditional pit gauges, Pipecheck has the capacity to measure both the internal corrosion (thanks to UT or interior 3D scanning if possible) and external corrosion (with 3D scanning) to get a complete 3D visualization of the damages for more detailed, in-depth analyses.
REGULARLY SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Operators who are responsible to put the aircraft back into service need a tool to validate if a component is within acceptance criteria after rework is completed. Oftentimes, MRO teams don’t have access to the CAD models of aircraft components, which means reverse engineering components becomes key.
High-resolution capture of all corroded areas
Fast surface acquisition to increase efficiency
Improved scanning performance for small features, such as pitting
Aircraft surface 3D assessments software
SmartDENT 3D is the first dedicated 3D visualization software on the market designed for 3D assessments and characterization of dent damages located on aircraft surfaces. lt offers a guided workflow approach to simplify the measurement extraction of 3D scan data to get exactly the dimensions required for the assessment of in-service airplanes.
Feature detection using real pipe geometry
Automatically applied interaction rules
Estimated burst pressure calculations
Enhanced virtual pit gauge capabilities near welds and obstacles
SmartDENT 3D greatly reduce operators' impact on measurements results and shortens the time to generate final reports.
