Pre-painted surface inspection of body panels through to the analysis of textured surfaces

With its easy-to-use surface area analysis, capability for rapid inspection, ability to inspect welds and junctions around the electric vehicle battery terminals, and better repeatability and resolution than existing methods, GelSight is ideal for the highly reflective and transparent surfaces (screens, glass, touchscreen displays) in the automotive industry.
