GelSight Mobile™ : tactile intelligence

View More:


GelSight Mobile™ is a handheld instrument that precisely visualizes and measures the 3D topography of any surface, revealing microscopic structures that are difficult to see under ordinary circumstances.


The tool can be used on any surface, including metal or glass, due to GelSight’s elastomeric sensor.



Advanced technology

GelSight Mobile features :

  • Rapid results : 3D measurements and data file provided within seconds of capture.
  • Handheld : ergonomic, easy-to-use for immediate data in the field or on factory floor.
  • Precise : incredibly detailed and reliable micron-level 3D measurements.
  • versatile : measure any material (metal, glass, carbon fiber) or surface (reflective, transparent).

Why GelSight ?

High-accuracy quantitative 3D data for entire surface vs. depth gauge or 2D profilometer. Easy, immediate, and repeatable results vs. laborious or time-consuming processes can be conducted in situ without destruction of disassembly to send off-site. Works with reflective and transparent surfaces, such as metal or glass.


Economic Benefits
Reduces waste/scrap  and non-quality costs. Decreases capital need for inventory. Improves throughput/productivity for high-cost parts. Enhances documentation/audit trail of data for later reference


How it works ?

Elastomeric Imaging
View More: elastomeric sensor conforms to the surface topography, revealing detailed surface features regardless of lighting conditions or material reflectivity, e.g., specularity or translucency.


The surface detail is displayed on contact, giving instant visual feedback.

3D Measurement
The 3D depth map is calculated from images of the surface, providing position, depth, and other derived surface measurements at a high resolution.







A portable and non-destructive technique to control surfaces of aerostructures, cowlings, engine fan blades, windshields and other surfaces.
