Lockheed donated a non-destructive inspection machine that is no longer used at the company’s Greenville facility. The machine will be used to teach students processes for inspection of aircraft components.
Students will be able to check for cracks and other potentially significant problems without having to destroy the component or take it apart. This process helps assure aircraft operational safety and reduces inspection costs, according to a press release.
