Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) has acquired a new inspection system supplied by Tecnatom which is described as the most complete robot-based system ever delivered to date.

According to Tecnatom, a final acceptance test on the new system was accomplished in early March. The system is composed of two robots or twin robots to perform ultrasonic inspections, providing great advantages and flexibility which enable the system to apply both transmission techniques and pulse-echo methods so evaluation of surfaces, edges and radii of the composite material can be carried out.

Antonio Tantarro, Tecnatom’s Manager of Diversification and Aerospace Business Development explains “This is not the first time that we supply our equipment to KAI to inspect composite materials, as they acquired a large-sized immersion tank for pulse-echo inspection with phased array technology as well as other Tecnatom Group’s supplies. However, this system represents a very important technological milestone for our company as it involves improvements in the control productivity. This solution is also equipped with phased array technology and two automatic changer modules which provide quick configuration settings. In addition, to complete its wide range of services, the system includes a specific laser module easily adaptable to inspect new complex geometry parts”, he adds. 

Together with KAI, the Korean tech centre for research of composite materials, GNTP, has received another robotic inspection system a few months ago. Both projects consolidate the presence of Tecnatom Group in this country, which keeps expanding its visibility in Asia.
