LASER ABLATION’S CURRENT USE IN MILITARY & DEFENSE
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.
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.
BENEFITS OF LASER CLEANING FOR DEFENSE & MILITARY
Using laser systems for cleaning and maintenance of your military equipment has benefits including:
- Decreases worker exposure and PPE requirements
- A proven, reliable, and low maintenance technology
- Reduces de-paint process time to increase warfighter readiness
- Removes lead based paint and hexavalent chromium
- Eliminates abrasive, chemical, and hand-sanding de-paint methods
