LSPT employs more than 50 full-time staff, which is more than twice the company’s workforce from 2017, including more than 35 engineers, technicians, designers and technical support staff added since May.
Laser Peening, often called Laser Shock Peening, is a metal enhancement technology used to combat metal fatigue and extend the life of metal parts. Short laser pulses create a shock wave at the surface of the part, changing metal surfaces to counteract corrosion, cracking, and vibration stress.
