Beyond FOD

Mentor Visual iQ changed the way we look inside engines.

The Challenge

As aircraft engines are becoming more and more powerful and use more exotic materials, the internal stresses on engine components are increasing. There is a marked increase in the types of assessment of indications sought during an inspection. Indications have gone beyond the concepts of FOD damage and general serviceability; it is the age of quantifying indications such as stress and fatigue failures. Most of these indications are not only unpredictable, but also difficult to locate. Operators require and are asking for more and more information on indications such as depth and contour.

GE as part of the solution

GE's Mentor Visual iQTM has changed the way Air India looks inside the engine. Outstanding clarity, ease of operation, wider range of view and  3D measurement techniques on-demand are some of the prominent advantages. These features have made the inspections more reliable and stresses on the workforce have been reduced to achieve a greater level of comfort and confidence in determining serviceability. In addition, the MVIQ technical support team are always available to take care of emergencies and backup requirements.
