Airbus has approved dentCHECK for assessing and reporting dent-size damage on composite cabin floor boards on all Airbus aircraft types. dentCHECK is the world’s only handheld, portable and completely wireless 3D inspection tool to be recommended by Airbus for this specific application. This recognition significantly expands the scope of Airbus’ original endorsement of dentCHECK last year, which allowed for mapping of dents on metallic surfaces.

 

Airbus’ Tool Equipment Manuals (TEM) and Tool Equipment Bulletins (TEB) are being updated to reflect this latest recognition of dentCHECK (TEB #: 300-A3327_2/320-A3497_2/340-A3505_2/350-A0132_1/380-A3351_2). Guidance to airline/MRO operators on proper use is embodied in Airbus’ Structural Repair Manual (SRM) 51.11.13.
