Dimac elevates aerospace quality standards 14 February 2024

In the realm of aerospace, where precision and compliance are paramount, only a handful of companies can meet the stringent standards. As a leading provider when it comes to the inspection and sorting of special parts for the aerospace sector, Dimac Srl is not only able to meet the standards, but elevate them thanks to its cutting edge inspection technology – based on Artificial Intelligence.

Dimac’s engineers, renowned for their expertise, have harnessed their skills to deliver top tier reliability and repeatability, with the latest addition to the company’s portfolio: The MCV3 rotary table inspection machine – an optimal solution for 12-point aerospace bolts and nuts, as well as similar components. 

What sets the MCV3 apart is the integration of the MCVx vision inspection software, equipped with intuitive tools designed to acquire the entire profile contour of the inspected bolts. This innovative software detects the smallest damages, nicks, and geometry defects, in a comprehensive 360° inspection – ensuring a high-quality in-process inspection. This advanced model also features dedicated inspection stations for crack detection and heat treatment inspection using Eddy current technology.

The MCV3 machine also offers unparalleled ease of use, enabling operators to define measurements with a simple drag and drop interface around the part profile. Additionally, the MCV3 machine controller provides a comprehensive set of statistical data that can be shared online with the company’s ERP network and can be monitored and programmed offline.

In response to the challenges posed by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, Dimac has also developed a special remote
control suite App and Tutorial WebApp. The WebApp assists customers in every aspect of the machine’s installation, start-up, use, and programming remotely, proving to be a valuable advantage appreciated by customers.

Recent advancements

In a recent milestone, Dimac has also commissioned a special machine, the MCV1, which is set to be delivered to PCC Airframe. This cutting edge technology is designed for high-speed, 100% inspection, and sorting of titanium rivets in the aerospace industry. 

The MCV1 is equipped with a very high resolution camera for dimensional inspection around 360°, achieving accuracy up to 1μn. A special camera for the rivet head surface inspection, backed by an AI algorithm, ensures the detection of minute defects in the coding mark on top of the heads surface and overall aspect of the part. The AI set-up is streamlined by Dimac’s powerful Human Machine Interface (HMI), enabling swift image grabbing and classification for efficient learning processes.

This solution also successfully passed MSA tests, validating its status as a state of the art solution for aerospace rivet inspection. 

“Our commitment to pushing technological boundaries continues to redefine the aerospace industry’s standards for quality control and inspection,” proudly states Dimac.
