8Tree’s Portable dentCHECK Selected by Lufthansa Technik

Lufthansa Technik has selected 8tree’s dentCHECK tool to enhance the efficiency and quality of damage-mapping across all of its base maintenance facilities. dentCHECK is a handheld-portable, wireless 3D surface inspection tool with integrated augmented reality, that delivers real-time ‘go/no-go’ SRM-compliant answers, 8Tree says. Defined by and purpose-built for the aviation industry, dentCHECK is in use by the airlines, MROs and OEMs.

“After testing several dent-mapping technologies in our Innovation Bay at Lufthansa Technik Malta, we were convinced by 8tree’s dentCHECK because of its user-friendliness and performance,” said Cathal O’Loughlin, head of Tooling & Equipment at Lufthansa Technik Base Maintenance Services. “By accelerating the damage-mapping process, dentCHECK increases efficiency. That’s why we decided to roll-out dentCHECK across our global Base Maintenance Network.”

dentCHECK says they reduce damage-mapping and reporting times by 90%, compared to traditional manual methods and that they deliver consistent SRM-compliant results elemenating the subjectivity of traditional manual measurement methods.
