A system that can identify and evaluate surface defects on airplane jet engine components


Automated System for Surface Pitting Analysis on Airplane Jet Engine

“Pitting” is a surface defect found on critical jet engine components of complex shapes and different sizes. It is currently detected by naked-eye inspection. Such task takes up significant man-hours, and embodies human errors which limit engine maintenance performance in terms of cost, time, quality, and safety. Combining robotics, image processing, deep learning, and non-destructive testing technologies, this automated system can identify and measure pitting. A robot is used to conduct inspection on engine components. The system shortens the inspection process, enhances the quality of work with more consistent workmanship and accuracy, and cuts down the operation costs.
