„EloWheel“ – three new wheel rim inspection systems for MRO companies
EloWheel, developed by Rohmann for the inspection of aircraft wheel rims, has been used in the wheel shops of renowned MRO companies all over the world for many years now. A success story, which continues up to the present day and which we wish to pursue with the latest version of the inspection system, the EloWheel RPT-17. In the design of the system, we have attached great importance to the safety of the user.
There is a new function for positioning the turntable on defects, which is set with the aid of a servo drive and an axial positioning laser. The rim halves can be inspected with a velocity of up to 120 rpm. An exact linear guiding system with a high-quality motor control of the axis moves the probes without vibrations.
EloWheel inspects rim halves with diameters of up to 800 mm. Rohmann has also developed the corresponding “ScanAlyzer” software. High quality components, a solid steel frame structure and our newest test instrument – ELOTEST PL600 – are applied.
The aviation industry is suffering badly from the Corona crisis at the moment. So we are all the more pleased, that three new systems have already been delivered to clients in Germany and abroad in the first six months of this year.
