8tree's dentCHECK is the 2018 Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the End Products category. dentCHECK is a 3D optical scanner (vision system) that is a purpose-built tool for the aviation maintenance industry. dentCHECK has been approved by Airbus, backed by Boeing & is being adopted by leading commercial airlines and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organizations. Additionally, aircraft OEMs are now implementing dentCHECK for airframe inspections on the flightline. The tool is delivering >90% efficiency gains vs. traditional manual measurement methods.
“We are honored by the Embedded Vision Alliance’s recognition of our dentCHECK optical inspection tool. We created dentCHECK in response to a chronic problem within the aviation maintenance sector. It is very gratifying to see the 90%+ efficiency gains that dentCHECK is delivering to airlines, MROs and OEMs. As it sets a new standard for damage measurement accuracy and repeatability, dentCHECK also empowers technicians and structures engineers with an improved understanding of airframe reliability.”
