Laser Optical Engineering Ltd (LOE) is an ISO9001 certified company, specialising in the development of innovative and bespoke laser based imaging products and services. Established in 1996 as an independent spin-out company from Loughborough University, we are a customer focused company who pride ourselves on an ability to turn theoretical ideas into commercial products which can be used in real-life situations.
Based near East Midlands Airport, LOE works with various industries, including aerospace, maritime, nuclear, transport and communications along with various research institutions. Alongside bespoke projects, LOE designs, manufactures and installs a range of laser safety equipment, provides consultancy, inspection and training services and designs and manufactures Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE’s) to your requirements.
Our Defect Dtect system, developed in our R & D facility, is a small, modular and versatile shearography unit providing whole-field, non-contact, non-destructive testing for rapid wide-field inspection of composites, bonded structures and other advanced materials.
Coming out of our in-house R & D facility, our experienced engineers are able to review your technical challenges and advise on solutions to any issues you may have. We offer a complete service from providing an initial proposal of ideas including costs and running through to the installation of your new piece of equipment with end-user training.
