Eddy current aircraft wheel inspection system
The VEESCAN H is ETher’s first Wheel Inspection System and offers maximum flexibility.
The VEESCAN has a proven mechanical design and established record of breakdown-free operation for 365 days or more. Appealing to many companies in the Aerospace industry, the VEESCAN is ideal in all aircraft wheel-testing environments.
The VEESCAN can be configured with a wide choice of probes and allows any wheel testing facility the flexibility to select the system most compatible with their workload. Teamed with a full choice of operation modes,
The VEESCAN maximises the probability of detection.
The VEESCAN is offered with the ETher NDE guarantee of complete client satisfaction and excellent technical support.

Due to the two axis bi-direction ability, the wheel orientation and direction of scanning maybe changed.
the machine is built from readily available automaton components from companies such as Schneider (worldwide distributon network).
A separate control stand with dual push button activation start means the operator is not near the rotating wheel during the test.
