Tecnatom (Madrid, Spain) is developing a new inspection system for Songwol in South Korea. In addition, in recent weeks it has also signed a contract with Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi for the supply of an automated inspection system based on ultrasound, comprising a robot mounted on a linear rail, allowing the application of pulse-echo techniques, using phased array technology for the detection and characterization of potential flaws in aircraft parts. This robot- based configuration will make it possible to scan complex geometries with high levels of productivity.

South Korea is one of the most active customers of Tecnatom in providing inspection systems, as five systems are currently implemented in this Asian country. The system developed for Songowl is for the inspection of major components made of composites. This system allows the control of parts by means of dual Through-Transmission (TTU) or Pulse-Echo (PE) ultrasonic techniques, depending on the structure of the component. It is equipped with a mechanical solution based on two robots, which can work collaboratively for the inspection of major parts using TTU technique or independently, in two separate work areas, for the control of parts by means of the PE technique.

Tecnatom says this system allows for the simultaneous inspection of two parts located in two different inspection areas.
