The idea to develop a drone solution for aircraft inspections started with our co-founder. As a pilot at KLM, Mark identified an opportunity for the use of drones. Jochem and Dejan, both with a robotics background, had the same use of drones for aircraft maintenance in mind to bring efficiency through automation to the aviation industry.
At Mainblades, we focus on robotizing aircraft maintenance, which is time–stringent and time–consuming, and disrupts processes which require decision making with human accuracy. Our aim: develop solutions which support engineers in performing their day-to-day job in a faster, easier, and safer manner.
We identified 3 processes that meet our robotization criteria. In all these use cases, we achieve >50% time reduction, while also making the job easier and more accurate.
