8tree’s dentCHECK inspection tool, developed for and used within the MRO sector for dent-mapping, is now being utilized at Boeing’s 787 production facility in North Charleston, South Carolina, to help ensure the quality of fuselage sections prior to final assembly.

According to 8tree officials, uses dentCHECK as an initial inspection tool to check the 787 fuselage skin for nearly microscopic anomalies in flatness.

“At 8tree, we continue to address a broad array of surface quality improvements across the aerospace supply-chain, empowering technicians and engineers to efficiently make more informed decisions about airframe integrity,” Arun Chhabra, CEO at 8tree, said.

The dentCHECK platform is the world’s only handheld-portable, completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry and recognized by all major aerospace OEMs for use by their respective airline operators. It can also be found integrated into drones and robotic automation cells. Leading airlines and MROs across the commercial, military, cargo and business aviation sectors use dentCHECK and dentCHECK-as-a-service for mapping aircraft damage and creating detailed SRM-compliant digital damage reports.

With integrated AR, dentCHECK empowers the aircraft technician with instant, actionable measurements while boosting consistency (18x), accuracy (20x), efficiency (90% time-savings), and eliminating human subjectivity, compared to traditional manual inspection methods. The tool delivers precision measurements ‘as simple as taking a photo’, and enhances safety through an improved understanding of airframe reliability.
