Transform your surface metrology solutions with 3D tactile sensing from GelSight. Eliminating the need for replica moulds in inspection, Gelsight provides instant digital results & analysis.
It helps to tangibly increase the throughput of inspection in primary manufacturing and MRO environments.
It is also used for:
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 Non-destructive technique for quality control of surface features of aero-structures, cowlings, engine fan blades, windshields and other surfaces.
Where It’s Used
The GelSight tactile sensor is handheld and perfect for use on the shop floor, and when measuring larger objects where access may be limited.
This portable handheld 3D topography measurement system is ideal for gauging surface scratches and defects, including those on fuselages.
The 3D surface inspection system offers an accessible approach to detecting and measuring surface dents and surface scratches.

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.

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.
