Eurosatory is the largest international land and air-land defense and security exhibition in the world providing an excellent opportunity to meet those involved in equipping modern armed forces and security services.
Laser Techniques Company, LLC, has added a new product, the Heavy Duty Support Stand, certified to support gun tubes or pipes up to 15,000 lbs (6,800 kg) and 26 feet (8 meters) long. This unique and rugged product with adjustable supports can be used to complement the BEMIS-LC™ Large Caliber or BEMIS™ Pipe Inspection systems or anywhere a safe and reliable stand is needed to support heavy gun tubes or pipes.
Laser Techniques Company, LLC, the industry leader in laser-based inspection equipment, and Mandus Group, Ltd, recognized globally for artillery innovation, logistics, and lifecycle support, have entered a collaborative working relationship to provide high-resolution laser-based inspection systems for the quantitative assessment of large caliber gun bores.
Laser Techniques Company (LTC) released its newest member of the BEMIS™ family of laser-based Bore Erosion Measurement and Inspection Systems. The BEMIS-MC™ a medium caliber, portable, laser-based inspection system. It is a ruggedized field inspection system that can scan a weapon barrel while it is still “on-carriage” and without disassembly or removal of a muzzle brake.
LTC Expands BEMIS™ to Conduct High-Resolution Inspections of Small and Medium Diameter Pipes and Tubes
LTC applies its advanced laser-based inspection technology for pipes with the release of the BEMIS™ Pipe Inspection System. BEMIS™ Pipe is a high-performance laser-based tool capable of rapidly, accurately and quantitatively mapping the internal surface of small and medium diameter pipes. Its flexible and user-friendly control and analysis software provides a wide variety of options for motion control, data acquisition, analysis and display.
LTC Develops Laser-Based Inspection System to Meet US Army Weapon Inspection Requirements at Yuma Proving Grounds
Laser-based bore mapping technology developed in concert with the US Army Yuma Proving Ground is keeping gun tube testing and evaluation on the cutting edge of measurement and inspection technology. Laser Techniques Company, a Redmond, Washington firm that specializes in advanced laser-based inspection technology, built the Army's first-ever laser-based bore mapping system for .50 caliber gun tubes. It was delivered to Yuma Proving Grounds to benefit YPG, the customer and the Soldier by quickly finding design issues during the early stages of research and development. Today, that system and many others are in use providing high quality data feedback to customers at the proving ground conducting research and development of munitions and weapons systems like the .50 caliber M2 machine gun, the 81mm and 60mm mortars and 155mm towed and self-propelled cannon to name a few.
Laser Techniques Company was recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the 100 fastest growing companies in Washington State. In fact, we were in the top 50! In 2008 we continued our growth, achieving 60% annualized revenue growth over the past four years.
Laser Techniques Company Develops Inspection System for Space Shuttle Primary Reaction Control System (PRCS) Thrusters
Each space shuttle orbiter has 38 Primary Reaction Control System (PRCS) thrusters to help power and position the vehicle for maneuvers in space, including reentry and establishing earth orbit. Minor flaws in the ceramic lining of a thruster, such as a chip or crack, can cripple the operations of an orbiter in space and jeopardize a mission. The ability to locate, measure, and monitor tiny features in difficult-to-inspect PRCS thrusters improves their overall safety and life-span.
