The aerospace industry continues to take off, with rocket launches now a regular occurrence with private space companies. Air travel also remains a popular choice, as seen by increases in passenger volume necessitating larger orders to replace aging fleets. These orders occur every year.

Aerospace visual inspection machines represent one key to the production of aircraft and rockets because of the tolerances needed for the aerospace machines to perform correctly on a daily basis while lasting for 30 to 40 years.

Find out how an aerospace visual inspection machine helps make your end product more viable to your customers.


Dimensions are one key to aerospace visual inspection machines for small parts. Bushings, nuts, bolts, fasteners, washers, clips, and metal discs must all have the correct dimensions to fit into the larger scope of a plane or rocket. Because weight conservation is crucial, fastener placement must be optimized. Every small part must fit properly.

Yes, tolerances on these parts give you room for error. But in extreme conditions, the room for error becomes magnified if a fastener assembly comes undone. Vibrations, temperature swings, air pressure, and chemicals can all cause problems with fasteners at the worst possible moment.

Aerospace visual inspection machines can pinpoint problems with the dimensions of small parts that are too far outside of acceptable tolerances.


Nuts, bolts, screws, rivets, and fasteners all rely on threads to stay together. The threads must be aligned properly during fabrication. Otherwise, they don’t fasten correctly. Deformed threads can become stressed or misaligned due to vibrations, leading to gaps between threads. Gaps can lead to even more movement before a larger part starts to come loose. 

Aerospace visual inspection machines can catch deformed threads before they even reach your customer, reducing the chances of a catastrophic failure.


Defects can come in many forms, such as contortions, bends, and twists. Malformed pieces can cause production stoppages, ruined parts, and delays when larger parts must be replaced. Aerospace visual inspection machines use precise digital cameras and exact lighting conditions to detect defects and reject bad parts before they become a problem for your end product.
