Industrial Laser Peening Research at ZAL TechCenter

LSP Technologies (LSPT) is offering laser peening research and application development at the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research in Hamburg, Germany. Machine time on LSPT’s state-of-the-art laser peening equipment at ZAL will be available to manufacturers seeking industry-leading metal fatigue enhancement.

LSP Technologies (LSPT) is now filling its schedule for laser peening application development in Europe. This landmark opportunity coincides with the impending delivery of LSPT’s Procudo® 200 Laser Peening System to the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research (ZAL Zentrum für Angewandte Luftfahrtforschung) in Hamburg, Germany. Beginning in 2018, LSPT is making the Procudo® System available to European manufacturers for laser peening research and application development.

Key features of the Procudo® 200 Laser Peening System:

  • Production-quality system engineered for high-volume laser peening
  • Diode-pumped, pulsed YLF laser delivers high beam quality for consistent processing
  • Fastest (20 Hz) and most powerful (200 W) pulsed laser peening equipment available in the world
  • Real-time diagnostics and selectable beam parameters for comprehensive process control

LSP Technologies Awarded NAVAIR SBIR to Develop Modeling Tool for Enhancing Fatigue Life

Residual stress modeling enables optimal surface enhancement for reducing high-cycle fatigue effects and improving component service life.

LSPT is developing an advanced modeling tool that integrates surface enhancement applications with fatigue failure rates.

LSPT is developing an advanced modeling tool that integrates surface enhancement applications with fatigue failure rates.

LSP Technologies, Inc. (LSPT) is developing an analytical modeling tool for use in design and repair of engine hardware for the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR). LSPT has been awarded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I funding to develop a probabilistic modeling tool that provides high-cycle-fatigue (HCF) failure rate prediction models relative to available surface enhancement treatments.

“Currently, there is no existing modeling tool with this level of probabilistic functionality,” explains Stan Bovid, Senior Materials Engineer at LSPT and Project Manager for the SBIR Phase I initiative. “We plan to develop and demonstrate an advanced software tool capable of incorporating residual stress profiles from different surface treatments into a probabilistic distribution of factors that contribute to fatigue failure.”
