GelSight Mobile Handheld Elastomeric Imaging Sensor

Handheld 3D topography measurement system including scratch defect inspection

A portable handheld 3D topography measurement system for gauging surface scratches and defects, including those on fuselages.

GelSight Mobile™ is a handheld instrument that precisely visualises and measures the 3D topography of any surface, revealing microscopic structures that are difficult to see under ordinary circumstances. The tool can be used on any surface, including metal or glass, due to GelSight’s elastomeric sensor.

A portable and non-destructive technique for quality control of surface features of aero-structures, cowlings, engine fan blades, windshields and other surfaces.
