How does the operator ensure that the Aeroscan M5 machine is producing accurate results?
The Aeroscan M5 machine, like many other calibrated tools, is calibrated once a year or more if necessary. This calibration ensures that the machine is set up properly and will result in accurate measurements when scanning the airfoil of the propeller blade. The lasers are calibrated each time the machine is initialized. This results in consistent and accurate laser measurements. Additionally, the operator scans a ‘master blade’ at the beginning and end of each blade measurement session. This master blade is one which has been measured very carefully and accurately using traditional methods. When the master blade is scanned using the Aeroscan M5 machine, the results are compared with the last master blade measurement data. If there is any inconsistencies in the scanned results, the machine calibrations are adjusted to insure that the Aeroscan M5 machine produces accurate results every time.
