The VEESCAN 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 is able to 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.

The VEESCAN offers our clients the ability to both improve inspection productivity and the quality of inspection with low cost of ownership. John Hansen, MD 

VEESCAN H is designed to lift the wheel and fix it with an automatic adaptor that uses the wheel inertia to centre it. VEESCAN H offers an integrated roller tray for easy manoeuvrability 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, the VEESCAN H offers easy wheel loading as standard.

Main Characteristics of the VEESCAN H:

  • Extruded aluminium structure covered with black Perspex panels. 
  • Separate Control Panel that may be positioned at a convenient distance from the main machine, which is height and angle adjustable. 
  • Teflon rotating table with three open sides for easy wheel loading. 
  • Roller tray to facilitate the wheel movement.
