A fruitful collaboration for the future of Digital X-ray and CT Inspection

Both partners initiated joint research and development activities to ensure on-time availability of inspection solutions for aerospace programs:

Airbus defines specifications (AITM) which are tested by Testia on-site prior to publication, in order to validate inspection and to ensure efficient qualification of suppliers.

Testia, as a user of AITMs, provides feedback and improvement suggestions for digital RT inspection approaches, which are taken into account for AITM updates.
