LASER ABLATION’S CURRENT USE IN MILITARY & DEFENSE
ARMY NATIONAL GUARD PURCHASES SEVEN CL1000 LASER CLEANING SYSTEMS
Right before the end of last year we received the largest order in company history from the US Army National Guard who purchased seven high-power CL1000 laser cleaning systems. After having used a variety of different processes in the past to strip their vehicles and equipment of paints, rusts, greases, and oils the USARNG has turned to laser ablation technologies to help reduce hazardous exposures and operator fatigue created with older processes like water & media blasting and using hand held tools.
OTHER MILITARY & DEFENSE APPLICATIONS
In 2021, our CL600 laser cleaning system—our highest mid-power option—was approved by the Department of Defense for Navy use. This included use on non-nuclear ships and extended a limited approval for in-service aircraft carrier applications and de-activated aircraft carrier applications and submarines. Other past work with the Navy includes the removal of hazardous paints from their warships.
Prior to the CL600’s approval, our laser cleaning systems have a well-established presence at multiple US Air Force and Army bases worldwide. Past work with the Air Force includes that at Travis Air Force Base, where their vehicles and equipment faced problems with large levels of corrosion build-up.
The Army has come to us with problems surrounding hexavalent chromium coating removal—a powerful anti-corrosive agent—due to it’s high levels of toxicity and presence on many large aircrafts.
