Work includes laser, beam delivery, tooling, and automation controls
Dublin, Ohio – December 12, 2018 – LSP Technologies, Inc. has won a multi-year contract to supply laser peening systems to Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer.
Substantial equipment innovation and proprietary tooling is under development at LSP Technologies’ Dublin, Ohio, headquarters, for use in new applications for aircraft parts.
LSP Technologies is working in close collaboration with Airbus to supply a portable laser peening system, complete with laser, beam delivery, tooling, and automation controls, for use at Airbus facilities.
“We are very grateful for the chance to work with Airbus, as well as the opportunity to expand the way we deliver laser technology to the aviation industry,” said Dr. Jeff Dulaney, LSP Technologies Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
The new LSP Technologies headquarters at 6161 Shamrock Ct., Dublin, will provide more room for expanding staff and larger customer parts.
Larger facility to accommodate a growing workforce and larger customer components
LSP Technologies, Inc. (LSPT), the rapidly growing leader and innovator in laser peening services and equipment, has acquired a 65,000-square foot facility at 6161 Shamrock Ct., Dublin., Ohio. LSPT will continue serving customers during the transition from its current headquarters and plant at 6145 Scherers Place, Dublin, only 1.2 miles away.
“We are delighted to remain in Dublin, our home base since the company began 20 years ago,” said Jeff Dulaney, LSPT President and CEO. “We appreciate the continuing support of Dublin city officials, who made the decision to stay in Dublin an easy one.” LSPT plans to transition to the new facility in early 2019.”
The move represents a signifcant expansion for LSPT. The new facility will support a growing workforce and provide the ability to handle larger customer components onsite. 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.
Employees who joined LSP Technologies in the last two years now have input into key new initiatives.
Dublin, Ohio – August 16, 2018 – LSP Technologies, Inc. (LSPT), the leader in laser peening systems to enhance metal fatigue life, has added more than 27 engineering and technical support employees over the last two years, doubling in size and spurring the company to seek larger facilities in Central Ohio.
The new staff include optical, mechanical, and materials science engineers, as well as product design and technical project managers with experience in nuclear and fossil power generation, heavy equipment and aviation technologies.
The laser source for the Portable Laser Peening System provides adaptability for fiber optic transmission of the laser beam, as well as a smaller size — less than a meter long.
Fiber optics and custom tools will carry miniaturized laser peening technology to mission-critical components
Dublin, Ohio – August 6, 2018 – LSP Technologies is designing a new portable fiber-optic laser peening system to improve fatigue life and prevent cracking and corrosion for small, hard-to-reach parts in new applications.
The Portable Laser Peening System will include miniature mirrors, lenses, and water injection/extraction mechanisms for complex maintenance, repair, and manufacturing environments. This means the portable system will deliver effective laser peening with lower energy, higher pulse rates, and the maneuverability of fiber optics.
The Procudo® 200 Laser Peening System has a compact layout. Embedded laser optics fit easily on a 4’x6′ optical table.
Dublin, Ohio – LSP Technologies, Inc. (LSPT) is launching new applications for its patented Laser Peening Process to serve the nuclear power, heavy equipment, and aircraft maintenance industries.
Precision, portability, and cost-effectiveness help open markets for the Procudo® Laser Peening System
New customers are adopting LSPT’s Procudo® Laser Peening Systems due to their precision, flexibility, low cost, and higher throughput rates, said President and CEO Jeff Dulaney.
LSPT’s patented Laser Peening Systems use a pulsed shock wave from high-energy lasers to enhance the ability of parts to resist foreign object damage (FOD), stress corrosion, and metal cracking.
“Our Laser Peening Systems increase the service life of many metal components by 10-20 times,” Dulaney said. LSPT’s metal stress modeling identifies stress points and enables precisely calibrated laser pulses for fatigue life improvement without damaging metal surfaces the way shot peening usually does, he said.
“The Procudo® Laser Peening System is the only commercially available laser peening equipment capable of a wide variety of customer applications,” he explained. “We can install the equipment in customer manufacturing and maintenance facilities.”
