Invert Robotics partners NDT to progress in aviation

November 28, 2019 / FlightGlobal

New Zealand robotics company Invert Robotics has partnered with US aerospace non-destructive testing group NDT Solutions (NDTS) in a deal that will see its innovative robotic solution developed for aerospace applications.

Invert’s remotely controlled robot features a patented suction mechanism that is capable of adhering to and traversing various aircraft surfaces, such as aluminium, carbon, or glass-fibre-reinforced plastic, says the company, which started life as a spin-off from New Zealand’s University of Canterbury School of Engineering. The unique suction capability allows technicians to scan the upper and lower fuselage or wing surfaces from a remote location in both wet and dry environments.
