Aircraft Wheels Inspection System

SMARTSCAN Aircraft Wheels Inspection System is intended
for testing of main and nose wheels of aircrafts of various world
manufacturers such as Messier – Bugatti, Goodrich, Honeywell,
Maggitt and others.

The System ensures the testing of the following wheel areas:
– cylindrical surface of the wheel (tubewell);
– radial transition from cylindrical surface to the flange (bead seat);
– zone of conjugation of the radial transition into the flange (flange).

Parameters of the testing object
Outer diameters of the tested wheels:
minimum – 7.5 in. (190 mm)
maximum – 26.5 in. (670 mm)
Diameters of the centered holes of the tested wheels:
minimum – from 1.57 in. (40 mm)
maximum – up to 8 in. (200 mm)

System Benefits:
A unique algorithm of ECP “sticking” to the inspected surface, i.e. tracking the wheel profile even in case of vertical and
horizontal wheel shifts;
A remote “Pause” button allowing to stop testing and perform a manual confirmatory testing procedure;
Wheel inspection in the “flange up” and “flange down” positions;
Adapters for inspection of wheels without a hub with a driven nipple;
Reliable wheel centering for heavy weight wheels;
Lockups which stop excessive force used in bringing the ECP movement mechanism to prevent an operator’s injuries and mechanical damage of the ECP.
