When Zeppelin encountered severe hailstorm damage on one of its Zeppelin-NT vessels, it turned to 8tree’s industry-leading dentCHECK tool to scope the damage and quantify it nearly 10-times faster than traditional methods.
“Thanks to 8tree´s technology it was possible to do a quick and precise analysis of the damage”, said Klaus Strasser, Technical Support Manager at ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH. “The instant answers and analytics allowed us to quickly assess each dent and define corrective action. This has been very helpful when creating repair instructions. The portability and accuracy of the dentCHECK tool made it very effective and satisfying to use. We were impressed with the compact design and the ease of use. 8tree’s dentCHECK proved to be an incredible tool in successfully solving our needs.”
“We are humbled that the historic Zeppelin brand called on our dentCHECK technology during their time of need”, said Erik Klaas, CTO, 8tree. “It is rewarding to learn that dentCHECK’s user-centric design and intuitive 1-button operation so thoroughly delighted the Zeppelin company, just as it has done for the global aviation maintenance industry. This design approach allows us to empower users of all skill levels with ‘go/no-go’ answers, not just data. We look forward to supporting the Zeppelin company’s future needs backed by 8tree’s exceptional customer service. At MRO Africa 2018 next week in Cairo, we will share a sneak-peak into several new capabilities that expand the dentCHECK eco-system and enhance operational efficiency for customers.”
Detailed case-studies published by TAP-M&E and easyJet, demonstrate thatdentCHECK drastically reduces inspection and reporting times by more than 90 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively. As such, it empowers aircraft maintenance operations with first-of-its-kind objective and consistent dent-inspection and blend-out results. This reduces aircraft Turn-around-Time (TaT), which further reduces lost revenues and very directly improves operational efficiency for airlines. dentCHECK enhances safety through an improved understanding of airframe reliability.
