Laser Bond Inspection Equipment

Industry Leading Bond Inspection

Laser Bond Inspection is one of the only processes capable of non-destructively evaluating bond strength in a structure. Our industry leading equipment is designed to quickly and efficiently determine whether structures have been adequately bonded. Contact us for more information on our LBI process.

Guaranteeing Quality and Safety

Many variables are present during the manufacutre of bonded assemblies, and any one of those variables could be devastating for a critical bond joint. The LBI process is used to ensure bonded products are up to design standards and safe for use.

Mobile Laser Bond Inspection Systems

The mobile line of LSP Technologies' Laser Bond Inspection systems is designed for maneuverability around an aircraft hangar or other shop floor space. This mobility allows inspections of bonded structures where needed by bringing the equipment to the product. The system can also be removed from the trailer design for permanent installation.

LBI Features:

  • Eye safe process
  • Articulating arm laser beam delivery with a 5.7 to 10 ft. reach
  • Amplifier lamps are replaceable without need of realignment
  • Cart mounted construction for jobsite movement
  • Safety features to protect the operator during inspections
  • Easy operator controls
  • EMAT sensor
  • Test result screen display

Potential LBI testing applications include:

  • Composite structures
  • Scarf repairs
  • Boron patch repairs
  • Wind turbine blades
  • Heat resistant coating Adhesion
  • Metal-to-metal
  • Metal-to-composite
  • Composite-to-composite
