The tool you’ll need to accelerate damage-mapping

8tree’s dentCHECK tool is approved and recognized by all major aerospace OEMs. It is slashing dent-mapping/reporting times by 90%, while delivering unprecedented levels of measurement accuracy and SRM-compliant answers. dentCHECK is revolutionizing the speed with which airlines can inspect airframe damage caused by GSE collisions, bird strikes, hail or damages occurred in production. This reduces Turn-around-Time (TaT) and boosts operational efficiency.

The right tool for the job

Portable and cable-free, dentCHECK is suitable for inspecting damages at the line, in the hangar, on the tarmac, or at an AOG situation. The tool measures dents, bumps, lightning strikes and blend-outs on metallic or on composite surfaces.

We were impressed with the speed and relative simplicity of the 8tree system compared with other available systems

Streamline your record keeping with 8tree’s Damage Reporting Tool (DRT). It allows engineering teams to quickly create detailed SRM-compliant damage reports using inspection results from dentCHECK – all in less than 5 minutes! Easily measure critical distances, add coordinate symbols, or obtain cross-sections of damages with the DRT. This digital report can be submitted to OEMs as an auditable record.


Reduce Turn-around-Times by leveraging with 8tree’s service offer.
In collaboration with a global network of service partners, 8tree offers hail-damage assessments and nose-to-tail inspections during lease phase-in-out operations as a service.
