  • BTG Labs Presenting at AA&S 2017

    by Emily Walsh May 2017

    Top aerospace manufactures recruit state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precision and perfection. One thing the best of the best have in common: the Surface Analyst. BTG Labs first engineered the Surface Analyst through an SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) grant to collaborate with the USAF (United States Air Force). Born out of necessity, the instrument was engineered to verify a surface’s readiness to adhesively bond fasteners.

    Today, the Surface Analyst is written into Lockheed Martin specifications for fighter jet manufacturing; it played a major role in the development of the F-35; and its expertise is trusted on all factory floors of top aerospace manufacturers.

    While the Surface Analyst use has spilled outside of the aerospace box, BTG Labs remains closely tied in the aerospace industry and that is why you will find us at AA&S 2017. Taking place May 22-25 in Phoenix, Arizona, The Aircraft Airworthiness and Sustainment Conference attracts leaders of the aerospace industry from around the world.

  • BTG Labs will present new data on monitoring laser cleaning with Surface Analyst at ALAC (Advanced Laser Applications Conference) 2017. Taking place in Novi, Michigan from May 9-10, this show brings together the latest in advanced laser technology.

    BTG Labs’ Lead Sales Engineer Lucas Dillingham will present a paper entitled, “A New Technology to Develop, Monitor, and Validate Laser Cleaning Processes” at 10:00am on May 10. Verifying the effect of laser cleaning on metal surfaces has proved challenging, especially on the manufacturing floor. This paper showcases new data on using the Surface Analyst to monitor and optimize laser cleaning processes on metals. The Surface Analyst’s portability allows for its use directly on the manufacturing floor to objectively verify laser cleaning on every part. Knowing the quantitative outcome of a laser cleaning application allows optimization to produce a more reliable final product. The Surface Analyst is the ideal way to verify laser cleaning processes quantifiably and precisely right on the factory floor. …Read More
