At Adapt Laser, we offer laser technology solutions that are ideal to remove paint / coatings from targeted areas of aerospace vehicles and parts. The technology works best with equipment and vehicles that require small area, localized cleaning for modification, corrosion control or other subsequent tasks.
Further, the United States Air Force has already worked with Adapt Laser to design a handheld optic for on-aircraft approval that does not alter the substrates. The F-35 program has worked with Adapt Laser to design and approved a custom optic using our laser systems to remove coatings also for subsequent processes.
Whether the area is inches or a few feet, our laser cleaning solutions offer a complete cleaning method – both the cleaning and clean-up is all done in one step with the handheld optic. Through the process of laser ablation, the coatings are removed to the bare metal without affecting the fatigue life of the aircraft or component.
Further, the technology can be used handheld or automated, in all shapes, safely next to valuable electronics, lines, other equipment or people not desired to be cleaned or affected, and our laser cleaning solutions will precisely clean the desired area without interacting or bothering anything or anyone around it. When contrasted to blasting, abrasives or chemical cleaning, laser ablation is a far superior method of removing small area coatings.
