For the aerospace industry, extreme precision for the vast array of parts and massive assemblies is essential—but can be hard to achieve. At Mitutoyo, our measurement systems with advanced sensing capabilities bring unmatched accuracy to aerospace component measurement, improving verification and traceability.
Aerospace Industry Realities
The complex and varied nature of aerospace assemblies means that an ineffective measurement process will slow production time and compromise accuracy. Given the critical nature of aerospace manufacturing, less-than-perfect performance simply isn’t an option. The norm is 100 percent inspection and electronic data collection, and metrology solutions must be able to keep pace.
In aerospace applications, the requirements for accurate assemblies are strict. Every element in an engine or turbine must meet precise tolerances to ensure reliability. This goes beyond dimensional measurement—proper hardness, contour and surface roughness must be verified as well.
Time and Cost Restrictions
As regulatory requirements become stricter and production cycles become shorter, the aerospace industry must find ways to validate designs ahead of final assembly. Engineers rely on metrology techniques such as 3D modeling or with CAD comparison to prevent expensive rework and speed final production without compromising accuracy.
