Rotable Repairs ‘look to the sky’ following re-brand

Bryan said: “The new company logo has been redesigned to address some of the issues with identification, reproduction and foot print. Even though the previous branding incorporated the company name, it was a secondary item that the eye fell to after the RR image.”
The re-brand was the result of a creative partnership between Rotable Repairs and Design Agency, Page Creative, Based in Basildon, Essex.
Paul, Lead Designer said: “We’re really happy that the re-brand has had such a positive impact to-date. Rotable Repairs have an invested interest in keeping traditional elements a strong focus within their business, as well as their brand, which lead us to create an update of the existing orange and black logo design.”
The Aircraft Wheel and Brake Specialists have since seen an influx of additional out-of-season work, allowing the extension of their new brand to cross a range of mediums such as an overhaul of on-site signage, branding materials, vehicle graphics, brochures and an up-dated stand for their upcoming attendance at MRO Europe on Wednesday 14 October 2015.

Ban on new applications for FAA foreign repair stations
Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) has launched a new survey to measure the impact of the ban on new foreign repair station certificates. U.S. Congress prohibited the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from acting on foreign repair station certificate applications submitted after 3 August 2008, because the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) had not finalised repair station security rules. The ban is an unprecedented example of punishing the industry for a federal agency’s inaction. Reportedly US aviation companies are barred from tapping into rapidly expanding overseas markets, which is hindering job creation and growth in the country.

New WheelScan 5 NDT Inspection Rig
In a drive to increase efficiencies Rotable Repairs and pleased to announce its most recent addition to its NDT department, the WheelScan5. This automated system uses eddy current to detect flaws or damage in aircraft wheels of all sizes. WheelScan enables operators to perform inspections faster without compromising inspection integrity.
Automatic System Increases Speed of Inspection
Aircraft wheels are subject to high level cyclic fatigue, particularly during landing. To ensure the safety of passengers and the aircraft, it is important that the wheels are maintained to the highest standard. Eddy Current wheel inspection is widely accepted throughout the world as a rapid and reliable means of maintaining the integrity of aircraft wheels.
Automatic Rapid Testing
The unit covers the wheel with inspection speeds up to 2 ms-1 (78 inches/second). All inspections are specified with a constant surface speed rather than fixed RPM, allowing the eddy current filters to give the best possible performance, irrespective of the amount of wheel taper. The operator can set up a wide range of helix settings to arrive at the quickest inspection for the required surface coverage. In addition, the stepper motor drives take the probe rapidly to the start of the inspection at up to 150 mms-1 (6 inches/second) to minimize inspection cycle time.
