In the Aerospace industry, composite materials are increasingly being used in the construction of commercial aircrafts.  The AcoustoCam™ can easily inspect these materials.

Boeing’s procedure for the AcoustoCam™ is available to all 787 Dreamliner owners.

Compsites have benefits and drawbacks.

Pros

 

Composites are lighter and stronger than their traditional aluminum equivalents, allowing newer aircrafts to fly faster, farther and to carry more weight.

Cons

 

Unlike aluminum, composite materials

may not show damage if there are certain types of impact to the aircraft.  

 

Thus, inspection systems operated by highly trained technicians may be called to the scene to verify aircraft integrity.

 

The resulting delay leads to lost revenue as aircraft must be removed from service in addition to the considerable equipment and personnel costs associated with existing ultrasonic test (UT) systems.
