Fighting Wear by Extending Metal Component Lifetime
Tool and die experience high-cyclic wear and damage that can slow down production time. With laser peening, dies have been proven to last 300% longer than standard production die sets, reducing preventative maintenance requirements.

Figure 1: Pilger Dies
Laser peening the surface of mating components helps increase the material resistance to galling by cold working the surface and inducing compressive residual stresses. Improving the residual stress in the tool and die surface has shown to extend die life.
- Laser peening can provide deeper levels of residual stress compared to alternative methods
- Laser peening can be more controlled to process only a portion of the die most prone to failure
- Higher levels of residual stress also improve resistance to shear stress and galling in the tool and die surface

Advantages of Laser Peening in Manufacturing & Tooling
Material strength is getting harder and harder, wreaking havoc on tooling and dies. Fatigue sets in, causing extreme wear and downtime to replace parts. The life of dies is challenging, however we have a solution. Laser peening can tackle the complex geometries of dies and provide reinforcement against the heavy material being used.

How Has Laser Peening Defeated Wear and Fatigue?
Let’s Get Started
We guarantee that laser peening can provide protection against wear, galling, cracking, and many other types of metal fatigue.
To find the best solution for you, we begin by understanding your parts, their purpose, and operating conditions.
Then we use computer modeling, as well as our extensive library of industry applications to show how laser peening can meet your needs.
Let us show you how laser peening can extend the operating life of your part by 300%.
