Aircraft wheel (wheel hub) automatic detection system

When planes sliding, taking off, and landing, the wheels are main load-bearing parts, especially under the massive landing impact and the braking thermal stress, so it is important for the safety of the aircraft whether the wheels are in good conditions. If wheel hubs are cracked, with the aircraft take-off and landing, the cracks of wheels should be extended under common actions of gas pressure and  strong impact, in less severe cases the air leakage in wheel hub usage can affect the normal operation of flight, serious when it can cause wheel hub cracking and flew out of the body, causing serious consequences. Fatigue crack is main form of wheel hub crack and the vortex testing is the method to detect the integrity of aircraft wheel hub quickly and reliably and recognized by the world.
ETS - Ⅳ aircraft wheel hub automatic vortex testing system is a set of mature hub detection system. It is based on advanced vortex testing equipment and combined with stable and flexible mechanism to realize the automatic flaw detection of aircraft wheel hub. The system has fast detecting speed, high reliability, wide adaptation, high resolution and sensitivity, and provides a perfect solution for detection of aircraft wheel hub. It is especially suitable for the maintenance departments with large quantity of wheel hub overhaul.
