Adapt Laser’s Sales TeamApplications Engineer at Warrior West Expo 2022 in booth

This past April, our CEO and our lead applications engineer were exhibitors at Warrior West in San Diego, CA. After finding the show to be rich in networking opportunities and extremely helpful in introducing us to potential clients in the defense and military sector, we decided to sign up to exhibit at the sister show on the East Coast. Two of our experienced sales managers will be in attendance at this show, and will be ready to answer any questions on the use of laser ablation in military and defense applications.


Laser ablation is ideal for applications like thick rust and paint removal, making it the perfect process to clean vehicles and equipment in the military and defense industry. Last year, 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.

Army Ranger Uses Handheld Laser To Remove Paint From VehiclePrior 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.
