GelSight, the developer of industrial 3D imaging solutions for the aerospace, automotive, and other electronics industries, raised $10 million in a new Series B funding round.
Anzu Partners, an industrial technology-focused venture capital firm, led the funding round.
The company plans to use the new funds to accelerate its growth as the adoption of its unique elastomeric-based imaging system gains deeper traction with major aerospace customers worldwide.
GelSight Mobile, the company’s flagship device, is a handheld instrument that precisely and repeatably visualizes and measures the 3D topography of any surface in seconds, revealing microscopic structures that are impossible to precisely assess in real-time. GelSight’s proprietary elastomeric sensor conforms to the surface topography of any material, including metals, composites, and glass, to reveal the surface features regardless of ambient lighting conditions or material reflectivity. The GelSight Mobile system gives instant visual feedback along with position, depth, and other surface measurements with high spatial resolution down to the micron level.
“GelSight’s handheld systems enable dramatic improvements to conventional inspection and quality processes, and we are seeing broader use among the world’s leading aerospace and automobile manufacturers,” said Kimo Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of GelSight.
“We are excited to have the backing of Anzu Partners to help us take our commercialization and product development efforts to the next level, expanding into other major aircraft manufacturers and aircraft maintenance operations here in the United States and abroad.”
