Non-contact Displacement Sensors for Aerospace Markets

Aerospace is a major market for Capacitec’s non-contact displacement, gap and hole mapping sensors and systems. Our customers build/rebuild commercial and military aircraft and engines. For 25+ years we have worked closely with manufacturing and quality engineers as well as R&D to enhance their product designs and production and quality control methods. Often we have replaced mechanical measurement tools such as feeler gauges and go/no gauges with electronic alternatives. For example:

  • The GapmanGen3® “electronic feeler gage” provides a high accuracy non-contact digital replacement to feeler gages with a built-in data logger, the only way to comply with SPC/Six Sigma product gap quality improvements.
  • The LiniGage is an Aircraft Engine Rotor Eccentricity Realignment System that is used to set the concentricity of engine rotor assemblies improving throughput and quality of engine rebuild.
  • The CMS-3/CHP capacitive hole probe offer a 48 sensor complete hole-mapping sensor in a portable system

 

Aircraft Engine

  • HPC/HPT rebuild eccentricity for CFM56, CF34-10 and others
  • Fan blade length and blade tip gap measurement for GE90, CF6, RR Trent and others.
  • High temperature runout and thermal expansion for P&W 4000 & F135 (JSF) and MTU
