Laser Shock Peening is a powerful surface enhancement method for strengthening any metal. High-energy laser pulses produce deep compressive stresses which prevent cracking and corrosion. Laser Peening is a precision enhancement method that can be used to correct distortions and cold-form robust components. Laser Peening can form compound curvatures, an application which could revolutionize maritime vessel construction and design. Laser Peening is proven to extend the service lifetime of common shipbuilding metals like aluminum and steel. It provides deep material protection against sensitization, corrosion, and fatigue cracking. Laser Peening will reduce costs, improve capabilities, and keep critical vessels on the water.
