Regular maintenance must be carried out on airplanes to ensure that strict safety measures are observed. In addition to servicing, this also includes the inspection and repair of individual components. During flight, the material is subject to enormous pressure. As an aid to maintenance, FOERSTER has developed devices to reliably check locally that individual parts remain free from cracks and potential damage.
One example are turbine blades, of which more than 1000 are installed in a single engine. During flight, corrosion damage and cracks can occur on these blades, which are arranged in a wheel shape.
The DEFECTOSCOP and DEFECTOMETER devices can be used to check the turbine blades for cracks directly on site during maintenance work. Special sensors that are connected to the devices allow a thorough and yet quick check of the turbine blades. In addition, the highly sensitive MAGNETOSCOP measuring device can check the turbine blades for corrosion damage caused by high thermal loads.
We help you to continue to enjoy freedom over the clouds without any care.
