  • Aerospace: Inspect more of the engine without decommissioning and analyse scratches, corrosion, weld points and defects.
  • MRO: For use during the maintenance, repair and overhaul section of aerospace.
  • Automotive: Brake disc analysis, texture analysis, fabric analysis for the weave of the fabric, camshaft imperfections and grooves.
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Smartphone manufacturing: Analyse imperfections on transparent material such as glass touch screens.
  • Medical device manufacturing: Analyse transparent components – pipets.
  • Medical Human Application: Analyse how wounds heal – scar tissue – on human skin soft gel.
  • Forensics: Analyse crime scene ballistics, gun barrels, cartridges and fingerprints.
  • Sunglasses: Measure highly reflective material glasses, components or consumer electronics.
  • Counterfeit investigation: Verify coins.
  • Museums: Analyse artefacts.

Key Characteristics Inspected

  • Inspection flushness of glass to metal
  • Chamfer of buttons and holes
  • Dents, composite panel, tools marks


  • Surfaces of aerostructures, cowlings, engine fan blades, windshields and other surfaces
  • Fastener assembly, dent, composite panel, tools mark
  • Precise assembly between parts of different materials (glass, aluminium, plastic) such as in mobile phones.


Gel cartridges are reusable but will need to be replaced when worn these can be bought separately.

Multiple types of gel are available to aid specific applications.

The elastomeric sensor conforms to the surface topography by revealing detailed features, regardless of lighting or reflectivity, e.g. specularity or translucency. The surface detail is displayed on contact, giving instant visual feedback. A 3D depth map is then calculated from images of the surface, providing position, depth, and other derived surface measurements at a high resolution.

GelSight’s Handheld Elastomeric Imaging Sensor helps to tangibly increase the throughput of inspection in primary manufacturing and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul – MRO environments.

Non-Destructive Testing or NDT is a favoured process in the manufacturing industry. It refers to a variety of inspection methods that allow inspectors to collect data and evaluate materials, systems and components without permanently altering it.

Sempre supply GelSight systems for aviation NDT, non destructive testing aircraft maintenance and automotive NDT.
