HAECO Group has begun using 8tree’s ‘dentCHECK’ tool to enhance the efficiency and quality of its dent-mapping activities.
HAECO Hong Kong and HAECO Americas are already making use of dentCHECK’s new automatic large-area mapping capability to “drastically reduce” the time taken for inspecting incoming hail-damaged aircraft, the company said.
8tree’s dentCHECK is a handheld-portable, completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry. The tool delivers real-time ‘go/no-go’ answers at the push of a button and is designed to reduce damage-mapping and reporting times, compared to traditional manual methods that use depth-gauges and straight-edges, according to t8tree.
“HAECO’s On-wing Structure Support team is constantly looking out for new technologies to enhance our safety, quality, performance and customer satisfaction. dentCHECK has enabled us to accurately capture all the data we need and generate a report in a short amount of time,” said HAECO Hong Kong’s On-Wing Structure Support manager Pierre Seon.
“It is a tremendous advantage to support AOG situations around the clock, as well as to map extensive damages like hail strike during base maintenance input. We look forward to working closely with 8tree for future technology enhancements.”
8tree’s chief executive officer Arun Chhabra commented: “We are delighted to welcome HAECO to the global community of dentCHECK users. HAECO joins the ranks of more than three dozen MROs, airlines and OEMs that use dentCHECK daily to disposition dent-damage on aircraft across the cargo, commercial, business and defence aviation sectors. We look forward to supporting HAECO’s maintenance facilities worldwide and having them experience 8tree’s exceptional customer service.”
