0th MXS Wheel and Tire Shop Keeps the Mission Rolling
Posted: 2022-10-31On his way in the door, Senior Airman Maurice Gardiner was expecting an easy ride.
How hard could it be in the Wheel and Tire Shop, he thought.
But the Airman from the 60th Maintenance Squadron was in for a surprise. The shop handles assembly and dismantling of all tires for C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, working on about 80 tires per month, according to Tech. Sgt. Alex Baker, one of the shop's two noncommissioned officers.
The shop's duties weigh heavily on the clock. Preparing o...Read More.
New Product Release - The James Bond Test ™ MK IV
Posted: 2022-10-26The James Bond Tester™ MK IV or pull off adhesion test measures the bond strength or tensile strength of concrete, asphalt, tile, concrete repair, or other overlay material by the direct tension or pull off method. By pulling a 50 mm (2 inch) steel disk attached to the material under the unit can,

3 Ways That the Acoustic Influence Map Is Better in MXU 5.10
Posted: 2022-10-18Since the Acoustic Influence Map (AIM) modeling tool was introduced with the launch of the OmniScan™ X3 flaw detector, it has become an integral assistance tool for the design of total focusing method (TFM) scan plans. AIM provides an estimate of the TFM acoustic intensity coverage for different TFM wave sets and scatterer types, enabling you to create a scan plan that maximizes the probability of detection (POD).
With the release of MXU 5.10, you’ll benefit from three major upgrades to AIM that fu...Read More.
