The factory acceptance tests carried out on the automatic UT inspection system for Premium AEROTEC GmbH, a first-tier supplier of structures to Airbus, have been successfully completed at the Tecnatom facilities in Madrid.
The system in question is a track-mounted robot with two modules of combined tools designed specifically for the inspection of the client’s varied geometries and taking into account the required level of productivity. It is also fitted with highly versatile tooling that allows different parts to be held and exchanged through a simple operation. Furthermore, it represents an important technological breakthrough since the new FPA-128M electronics developed by Tecnatom are included for the first time in a supply to the aviation industry.
Last year Tecnatom signed an agreement with the German company Premium AEROTEC, this marking the entry onto a market traditionally operated by local competitors. This inspection system not only represented a relevant technical breakthrough but was also an important milestone since it was the first aeronautical supply for the German manufacturer, one of the world’s most important companies in the development and manufacturing of structures and production systems for the civil and military aviation industry.
