Learn More About Laser Bond Inspection

The latest brochure describes the many benefits of Laser Bond Inspection for non-destructive testing of composite adhesive bonds.

Aerospace, Power Generation, and Automotive composite components will improve in quality, consistency, and durability, with the assurance of Laser Bond Inspection.

And we describe the unique technological advantages of LBI for detection of sub-standard bonds and kissing bonds — materials that are in intimate contact, but have no mechanical bonding strength.

Customized Laser Bond Inspection Equipment

Each portable Laser Bond Inspection System can be tailored to a specific application. Using specialized tools, snapping on to fiber optic cables, a single system can accomplish tasks for multiple applications and components.

  • Size and accessibility of area to be LBI inspected
  • Thickness and geometry of bond
  • Number of inspection points per day
  • Mobile or stationary LBI Solution
  • Move the Beam to the Part or the Part to a Fixed Beam
  • Real-time test data and bond line evaluation
