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 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 maximizes the probability of detection and is offered with the ETher NDE guarantee of complete client satisfaction and excellent technical support. The VeeScan H is designed to lift the wheel and fix it with an automatic adaptor that uses the wheel inertia to center it. VeeScan H offers an integrated roller tray for easy maneuverability and integration into a conveyor system and can test wheels up to 900mm diameter. The H is designed with an adjustable-height Control Panel for operator comfort and can be positioned at a convenient distance from the main machine. Open on three sides, it offers easy wheel loading as standard.
Designed by the original engineers of the Hocking Wheelscan
The Control Panel is used to program the inspection and control the moving elements of the VeeScan. Via USB it interacts with the AeroCheck+ display inspection signals. From the Control Panel the user can export a PDF report of the inspection, including all relevant industry inspection and eddy current testing parameters. The VeeScan Control Panel can be configured as a standalone unit or on a pivot arm attached to the machine. Either option ensures the safety of the inspection team, offering ease-of-use with the ability to re-position when required. The stand alone unit is designed with an adjustable-height Control Panel for operator comfort and can be positioned at a convenient distance from the main machine.
The VeeScan works in conjunction with the AeroCheck+, which sits behind a protective tough polycarbonate window and provides the unit with the eddy current technology for the inspection and is used to program the wheel-scanning probe. With the ability to pre-program the probe the operator can guarantee the correct set up is being used for the current inspection job. The simplicity of having the AeroCheck+ in its own housing on the front of the machine also means that it is readily available to be used as a stand-alone unit for manual inspection if needed. The unit transmits the eddy current signals to the VeeScan Control Panel PC offering stable eddy current performance, high resolution and the flexibility that the AeroCheck+ is known for.
The VeeScan is designed to lift the wheel and fix it with an automatic adaptor that uses the wheel inertia to center it. It offers an integrated roller tray for easy maneuverability and integration into a conveyor system. The VeeScan also features an automatic hub size adaptor and can test wheels up to 35” (900mm) diameter. A circular absolute probe is positioned perpendicular to the surface to ensure uniform sensitivity regardless of wheel surface profile as the probe progresses through the wheel bead seat area. Recommended frequency is 200kHz.
