CHAT WITH OUR SALES TEAMApplications Engineer at Warrior West Expo 2022 in booth

This is the fourth “Warrior” tradeshow we’ve exhibited at, having also attended Warrior West earlier this year in San Diego, CA and the previous Warrior West and Warrior East last year. We’ve found the shows be rich in networking opportunities and extremely helpful in introducing us to potential clients in the defense and military sector. 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.

Army National Guard Purchases Seven CL1000 Laser Cleaning SystemsAdapt Laser

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.

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.
