The LaserGauge is used for a variety of applications in aerospace assembly, repair and servicing.

App Radius Fan Disk TS800 CloseupBreak Edge/Chamfer/Radius
Inspection Problem: The break edge on corners of critical jet engine parts must be within established maximum and minimum tolerances for the parts to be flight-worthy. An algorithm is available to inspect edge breaks on corners, such as required for these parts. The algorithm will...

App Fastener HS702Fasteners
Inspection Problem: Fasteners on the exterior of aircraft must be flush to the surface within a certain tolerance. A fastener that protrudes above or one that is driven below the adjacent surface may adversely affect performance in flight. Mechanical devices measure the height at one single...

Applications - Aerospace - Gouges and DentsGouges and Dents
Inspection Problems: Critical components in aircraft and space vehicles can be damaged by foreign objects during repair processes or by unexpected wear during normal operation. Any material removed from a surface by a scratch or a gouge or any deformity of a surface, such as a dent, may...

Applications - Aerospace - Leading Edge Profile (Benchtop)Leading Edge Profile (Bench Top)
Inspection Problem: The leading edge of a vane or blade used in aircraft or power system engines must maintain its designed contour within an acceptable range for safe and efficient operation of the engine. Measurements that are critical include the edge radius and the width or...

App Aero LE BladeLeading Edge Profile (Hand Held)
Inspection Problem: The leading edge of a vane or blade used in aircraft or power system engines must maintain its designed contour within an acceptable range for safe and efficient operation of the engine. Measurements that are critical include the edge radius and the width or thickness of...

Blue Laser TS800 closePitting and Corrosion
Inspection Problem: Pitting on a jet engine turbine blade requires repair once it exceeds a depth threshold. If the pitting is too severe, the blade cannot be repaired and has to be scrapped. Identifying blades that are eligible for repair saves significant costs for the...

App Aero Fill HS702 01Dielectric Fill
Inspection Problem: After fasteners are installed on the exterior of an aircraft, the face of the fastener is often below the surface. A dielectric fill or substrate is added and then sanded or polished to be level with the surrounding surface. Measuring the depressions/raised material pre and post sanding is difficult...

App Step TS800 CloseupStep/Angle
Inspection problem:There are few options for measuring step heights between separated, nominally plane-parallel surface regions of a precision-engineered part. Obstacles to overcome are surface textures...

App Wrinkle ScreenshotSurface Roughness/Wrinkles
Inspection problem:Surface roughness, texture or wrinkles plays an important role in determining how a real object will interact with its environment. Rough surfaces usually wear more quickly and have higher friction...
