Montreal, Canada– Before Christmas, AV&R Vision & Robotics Inc won contracts worth more than $1.5 million from two major European players in the jet engine industry. AV&R will thus install surface inspection systems in Germany and England.

AV&R specializes in gas turbine manufacturing solutions in the fields of Robotic Material Removal and Automated Surface Inspection. Because of its unique expertise, AV&R was chosen by these two major European companies to help them with their challenges in visual inspection.

These systems will inspect 100% of the surface of fan, compressor and turbine blades looking for any random surface defects such as nicks, dents, scratches and tooling marks. The core of the system is its flexibility, achieved through combination of machine vision and robotics.

The addition of these inspection systems in these two European companies’ current methods will enable them to increase the efficiency of their inspection process.
