Automation of Visual Inspection and Finishing Processes for Aero-engines- [AVISPA]

Several manufacturing techniques used in the aviation propulsion segment have reached a sufficient maturity level to integrate closed loop controls and algorithms thanks to a higher and deeper use of visual sensors and machine learning algorithms. The Automation of Visual Inspection and Finishing Processes for Aero-engines (AVISPA) activities will target the integration of automatic visual inspection, automation and digital control technologies to critical manufacturing processes used by aviation industrial leaders (ITP and Avio Aero):
• Predictive monitoring of cutting tool wear
• Closed loop control of several machining techniques such as surface finishing and chamfering(*)
• Automation of visual inspection applied to part with honeycomb and critical engine components(*)
The activities will have deep impact on manufacturing techniques that are widely used on the market and will therefore allow great achievements in terms of manufacturing technology efficiency and digitization.
