8tree Expands Aircraft Damage-Mapping Usage

Horizon Air, a western US regional airline has begun using dentCHECK to enhance the efficiency and quality of its aircraft damage-mapping and reporting activities.

“With dentCHECK, Horizon is able to quickly and accurately map dents and release aircraft back into the operation safely”, said Archie Vega, Director of Line Maintenance at Horizon Air. “dentCHECK allows us to quickly assess and map dents in a fraction of the time it would take to hand map. This will advance our capability into the future as we start to expand dentCHECK use to other Horizon maintenance locations.”

“We are delighted to welcome Horizon Air to 8tree’s growing base of dentCHECK customers”, said Arun Chhabra, CEO, 8tree. “Horizon joins the rapidly growing global aviation community of more than three dozen airlines, MROs and OEMs who rely on dentCHECK for verifiable end-to-end digital damage-mapping and reporting, across a wide variety of commercial, cargo, business and defense aircraft. We look forward to empowering Horizon’s maintenance operations and having them experience 8tree’s exceptional customer service.”

8tree has also achieved three years of dentCHECK support to leading global aerospace and defense technology innovator L3Harris Technologies. L3Harris’ Greenville, Texas aircraft missionization center uses dentCHECK to improve the efficiency and quality of its aircraft damage-mapping activities.

“In our experience, the technical rigor of the L3Harris team is unparalleled”, said Arun Chhabra, CEO, 8tree. “In light of this, it was all the more rewarding for us, when they decided to implement dentCHECK at their Greenville site a few years ago to enhance their diligent aircraft damage-mapping processes. We are honored and excited to play our small part in the mission of supporting the warfighter to protect our nation and its allies. We look forward to continuing to enable L3Harris with our technologies and having them experience 8tree’s exceptional customer service.”

The dentCHECK handheld-portable is a completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry. It is now used by the world’s leading commercial, cargo and defense MROs. Delivering real-time ‘go/no-go’ answers at the push of a single-button, the tool significantly reduces damage-mapping and reporting times, compared to traditional manual methods that use depth-gauges and straight-edges.

Approved and recognized by all major aerospace OEMs (Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer), dentCHECK is used by the world’s leading airlines/MROs for fast and accurate damage-mapping and SRM-compliant multi-dent reporting. When compared to traditional inspection methods, dentCHECK delivers a 90% gain in efficiency and 35x better measurement consistency.

OEM-acceptance has led to widespread adoption of dentCHECK amongst airlines/MROs. Detailed case-studies from easyJet, Delta TechOps and TAP-M&E, as well as news from Lufthansa Technik, Kalitta Air, Aeromexico, Airbus’ Flightline, DHL-Express and Zeppelin, demonstrate that dentCHECK drastically reduces inspection and reporting times by up to 90%. This shortens aircraft Turn-around-Time (TaT), which further reduces lost revenues and very directly improves operational efficiency for airlines. dentCHECK enhances safety through an improved understanding of airframe reliability.
