For military and civilian aerospace and space companies, GelSight provides rapid, repeatable, non-destructive testing for manufacturing and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of engines, fuselages and other critical components. Applications include weld inspection, scratches and dents, corrosion marks, fastener flushness, and more. Our technology is ideal for metallic and composite material and for highly reflective and transparent surfaces common in this industry.
For automotive and precision engineering, GelSight offers an easy-to-use, highly repeatable solution for surface inspection and analysis. Applications include weld inspection, scratches and dents, panel gaps and flushness, electric vehicle battery junctions, painted panels, dashboard texturing, and more. Our technology works on highly reflective metals, glass and translucent surfaces, leather, textiles, plastics and polymers, composites, painted surfaces, and aluminum.
For robotics manufacturers, GelSight provides revolutionary Digital Touch technology that enables robots to perform tasks requiring a human-like sense of touch.
GelSight provides law enforcement agencies with innovative optical virtual comparative microscopy solutions. Our tactile sensing technology is used to correlate spent gun cartridges to a seized weapon when combined with AI/ML image libraries, identify counterfeit products and inspect drug delivery devices in discrete transparent packages. Tools built with GelSight’s tactile sensing technology used by our partner, Cadre Forensics, have been validated by peer-reviewed publications and independent studies by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
We support precision 3D printing with solutions for analyzing the surface topography of printed plastics and metals. GelSight enhances the inspection process with its speed, digitization of precision measurements, defect inspection, and material structure with superior repeatability and resolution than existing methods. GelSight’s tactile robotic solutions enable next-generation automated materials handling capabilities.
Research and Academia
Providing precision 3D measurement, surface visualization and tactile robotics to support research across a range of fields—from archaeology and biological materials to industrial surfaces. Our elastomeric sensor technology enables high-resolution 3D imaging of virtually any surface, including human and animal skin, plant materials, historical artifacts, snow, and more.
Oil & Gas
In the oil & gas industry, production quality control and ongoing inspection for surface defects on rods, pipes, plugs, and enclosures is critical for maintaining safe operations. GelSight applications include pitting and corrosion analysis, scratch and dent inspection, weld bead analysis, profile roughness, and more. Our technology is ideal for performing high accuracy measurements on highly reflective surfaces in any location under any lighting conditions.
