Custom Laser Peening SolutionsDiscuss Custom Equipment
Our custom laser peening solutions take the challenges our customers face and turn them into innovative equipment and solutions for metal surface improvement.
We can install custom laser peening solutions on the factory floor and integrate them — and their production data — into advanced manufacturing processes.
Look to us for custom laser peening solutions that address hard-to-reach areas of your components. Custom applications can provide solutions for maintenance shops and hazardous environments, too.
- Specialized Tooling Tailored Precisely To Your Production Environment And Components
- Solutions That Provide Laser Peening Benefits In Hard-To-Reach Locations
- Solutions That Work For Large Components That Cannot Be Shipped
- Portable Solutions For Flexibility In Multiple Applications And Processes
- Laser Peening Equipment That Operates Under Hazardous Condition
Custom Engineering That Produces Results
Manufacturers increasingly demand customized laser peening equipment that fits a specific production environment and meets demanding metal surface improvement requirements. Some of our custom solutions incorporate the Procudo® Laser Peening System to generate the laser beam for custom tooling and applications.
Other custom solutions involve developing completely new custom laser beam delivery equipment from the ground up for exactly the power levels and applications you need.
Either way, we bring the in-house skill sets of an unmatched engineering staff to deliver expertise and solutions for all optics, tooling, automation, and materials science and analysis.
For each custom solutions customer, we can develop
- Equipment footprints customized for application environments
- Lasers from low-power up to 10 joules
- Fiber optic laser beam delivery option
- Custom arm and mirrors for remote beam delivery
- Micro-mirrors and micro-lenses for hard-to-reach locations
- Portable laser peening systems for smaller production lines or maintenance operations
Developing Custom Laser Peening Equipment Takes Expertise, Creativity, and Commitment
Our ability to develop first-of-a-kind projects is based on laser peening technology and innovation for nearly 25 years. During that time, customers have seen the benefits from our creativity, innovation, flexibility, and speed.
Our team delivers the goods – the consistently high level of expertise, hard work, dedication, and relentless commitment to excellence.
First, we seek to understand your components, the production environment at your facilities, and the precise metal fatigue issues to address.
With FEA modeling techniques, our extensive library of alloys and shapes – and your experience – we will pinpoint where laser peening processing will counteract tensile stress with compressive residual stress.
Next, we develop an application, with verifiable compressive stress and life-extension for your part, often extending the useful life of your parts by up to 10x what you’ve experienced.
Our interdisciplinary team moves into action, developing your custom equipment solution
With an understanding of your components, environment, and objectives constantly before us, we explore alternative equipment strategies – some involving our standard Procudo® Laser Peening System, other alternatives with completely custom approaches and tooling.
We work closely with customers to maximize the value of your custom solution by evaluating costs of design, fabrication, software, and installation.
After a preliminary design and project approval, we constantly improve and simplify equipment and installation options, winning approval from customers at crucial design review checkpoints.
Most important, we identify issues to resolve quickly – with accelerated problem-solving by our small and agile staff, and open communication with you, our customer.
We Deliver on Laser Peening Technology
Our experienced project managers will monitor every aspect of your custom equipment project. They are experienced engineers, technology managers, and quality guardians, focusing on objectives, timelines, and meeting your requirements.
Our experienced engineers and technicians integrate the technology, and we assemble your custom equipment in-house at our Dublin, Ohio facilities.
We have more than 50,000 sf of plant to devote to assembly, development, and testing, allowing us to devote ample space to custom laser peening projects.
We can complete and demonstrate our custom laser peening tools and perform factory functional tests to demonstrate equipment operations and verify benefits to your parts – again, all in-house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Laser Peening Equipment
It Starts with Your Metal Surface Challenge – and a Conversation With Our Helpful Experts
The challenges of corrosion, cracking, and metal fatigue seem unending.
When you’ve tried different alloys, surface treatments, shot peening, or abrasion, it just may be time to consider laser peening.
And when the component is too large to move, inaccessible, or just technically difficult to process, may be time to consider a custom laser peening equipment solution.
Our helpful and creative engineering experts can help you determine quickly if a standard equipment or custom equipment proposal is right for you. And we can prove laser peening solutions out for most components in less than 30 days after receiving test materials and technical data.
