E-drill Steals the Spotlight at Aerospace Maintenance Competition
Perfect Point and Ntegrity Celebrate United Airlines as Winner at the 2019 Aerospace Maintenance Competition
The E-drill Fastener Removal Event was a top hit according to most of the 449 Technicians competing in the 2019 Aerospace Maintenance Competition. The event tested each competitor’s ability to remove 5 titanium Composi-Lok type fasteners from a refurbished composite Global 5000 Flap.
These fasteners are constructed of titanium and steel alloy, making conventional drilling extremely difficult to control, which can often resulting in damage to the structure. This task could take an experienced technician 20 minutes or more to complete using a twist drill. Technicians using E-Drill were able to complete the task much faster, with no damage to the fastener holes. United Airlines – Base Maintenance was the fastest team to complete this event, doing so in 2 minutes 49 seconds.
The E-drill’s exciting first year at the competition had the contestants talking and was flagged as one of the “Cool Events to See at the AMC” by Aviation Pros AMT Magazine.
Here’s what some of the competitors said:
“I’ve been a structures mechanic for over 10 years… and I’ve wasted a lot of time because I didn’t have this tool. It’s clean, you don’t mess anything up, I really wish I would’ve had this tool”
“… my favorite event in the Competition. You HAVE to come back next year”
“Where were you 30 years ago?” “This is an amazing product.”
