This summer, Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and Tecnatom consolidated their technology alliance by closing a new contract, by which the Spanish company will update the Turkish company’s inspection equipment. Within the framework of this contract, we will carry out the retrofit of a water jet transmission and local immersion pulse-echo inspection system.
During the initial phase, this new system will be used for the inspection of flat parts, this being extended to include complex curved (3D) parts in a subsequent phase. Tecnatom will supply its SONIA data acquisition system and associated wiring, in addition to fine-tuning and the corresponding training. As always, our commitment is to accompany the client, providing advisory services throughout the learning phase through our specialist personnel.
This year has seen the consolidation of a number of projects with the Turkish company, which has already acquired our SIAT equipment, a gantry type inspection system especially designed to integrate transmission and pulse-echo techniques in the ultrasonic control of flat and curved parts of constant profile. This system was integrated in the industrial process carried out by TAI at its facilities in Ankara for the control of parts in composites.
