The Procudo® Laser Peening System is a diode pumped pulsed YLF laser that operates in the infrared at a wavelength of 1053 nm. The laser is capable of a repetition rate of 20 Hz and is able to emit a 10-20 ns pulse containing 10 Joules of energy. The 200 Watt average power is the highest power pulsed laser available for laser peening. At this power, a part can be laser peened at a rate of 7 square inches per minute. The compact and modular design of the Procudo™ Laser Peening System enables laser peening technology to be quickly and easily inserted into a customer’s facility.
The laser employs a seeded Master Oscillator-Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration to obtain a near field flat top beam profile. Ultra-long life quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) pump diodes allow the laser to operate for many billions of shots, before needing replacement. The system was designed to provide 24 hour operation with minimal technical intervention and maintenance cost. The Procudo® LSP System can be integrated with a wide variety of automated part-handling robots and accessories to create a turn-key laser peening facility that enables laser peening of parts of nearly any size and shape. LSPT’s custom control system and diagnostics package based on our 20 years of laser peening experience allows the user full control over the system with real-time data analysis and feedback.
The Procudo® LSP system enables the production of deep residual compressive stresses that increase the fatigue life and strength of metallic components. Laser peening enables a designer the ability to locate deep, beneficial compressive residual stress into fatigue plague areas of components to reduce crack initiation and growth.
