Aerospace is one of the most regulated industries in the world. As a result, maintenance is performed frequently and all aspects of airplanes need to be inspected thoroughly.
Laser cleaning is a fantastic solution for de-coating parts or an entire plane! The moulds used to make composite parts are another proven and active application for laser cleaning systems.
Given that laser cleaning is a non-abrasive and non-contact process, structural integrity is not compromised. The surface will retain its original profile and be ready for paint after inspection.
Laser cleaning systems can also be used to degrease a surface, remove oxidation and rust, remove carbon deposits from turbines, and generally clean any metallic component.
