USL has been supplying ultrasonic systems to the aerospace industry since 1988. In fact one of the first applications of non-contact, contour following ultrasonic inspection in Europe was a system supplied to Rolls-Royce in 1989. Shortly after that we supplied our first 10 axis though transmission squirter system – both shown here. Since then we have manufactured over 150 systems for aerospace applications. Our customer list includes some of the world’s major manufacturers, such as:
Rolls-Royce plc (UK and Singapore)
GKN Aerospace (UK, USA and Sweden)
Fokker Aerospace, The Netherlands
Hafei Aviation, China
Hindustan Aeronautics (India)
GE Aviation (UK and USA)
Examples of some applications are:
Immersion tanks for inspection of aerospace quality aluminium and titanium alloy plate.
Large squirter and immersion systems for inspection of complex composite parts for Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and other aircraft manufacturers.
Flat bed squirter systems for rapid inspection of multiple composite panels.
Immersion tanks for inspection of fan blades and similar parts fabricated by SPFDB (superplastic forming and diffusion bonding).
Special purpose machines for fabricated assemblies, such as electron beam welded auxiliary power generators and composite drive shafts.
Immersion systems for forgings in titanium, nickel and aluminium alloys.
