Save man hours searching for tools
"Numerous hours can be expended searching for misplaced tools. With the human factor in maintaining aircraft, it is inevitable that mechanics will misplace hand tools. One installation reported at least a 60% drop in man hours searching for tools after using the AeroprobeTM system."
--Reduce Aircraft Downtime --
"An FA-18 aircraft was delivered to a new location and the paperwork indicated a two week search had been conducted earlier for a possible missing tool that was not recovered. The crew at the new location used the AeroprobeTM and the tool was located within 10 minutes. How much would two weeks of aircraft downtime cost your company?"
"During a change out of a fuel cell on a FA-18A a mechanic dropped a 2" fastener removal tool in the wing joint area of the fuselage.
To retrieve it, many components would have to be disassembled at an estimated time of 50 to 60 hours. To stay on schedule and to get the job done, the maintenance of cer used the AeroprobeTM from outside the aircraft to pinpoint the location of the tool through the cowling. Using the AeroprobeTM, the technician then guided a magnetic tool retriever to the location of the dropped tool. The tool was recovered using this technique within 1.5 hours. The result: a savings of 50+ hours of substantial tear down of the aircraft as well eliminating critical and costly aircraft downtime."
Prevent damage to aircraft
"At the end of a day shift inventory, it was determined that a 4" phillips head screwdriver was missing. Flight line maintenance was performed on a number of aircraft that day so all personnel were required to perform a standard misplaced tool search. Using the AeroprobeTM, they located the tool that was hidden from sight, behind a “Z” bar inside the engine bay door on a F404 engine, in just ve minutes! The estimated cost avoidance to the engine was $2.5 million."
