Wright Dialogue with Industry

July 20-21, 2011
Hope Hotel & Conference Center
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio

LSP Technologies is proud to attend again this year to discuss it’s laser peening process and services as well as it’s laser bond inspection process.

The following is taken from their website:
The Dayton Area Defense Contractors Association (DaytonDefense) will sponsor the fifth “Wright Dialogue with Industry” conference on July 20-21, 2011 at the Hope Hotel and Conference Center, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH.

The purpose of this conference is to help promote economic development activity among local defense contractors and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Please plan to attend this year’s Wright Dialogue with Industry to hear first-hand from key leaders of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) organization as they discuss both current and future business opportunities.  There will be opportunities throughout the day for more detailed breakout sessions where you can pose your particular questions to the Laboratory representatives. Throughout the course of the event, there will be time to network and discuss opportunities to do business in greater detail with AFRL.


Laser Peening of Raptor Engine Components

Aerospace applications of laser peening include many gas turbine engine components, such as airfoils and integrally bladed rotors (IBRs) because of the enormous benefits of preventing fatigue failures and improving damage tolerance for these critical parts.


LaserPeen® Processing of Raptor IBRs Production at LSP Technologies, Inc.

Laser peening is a Production Process for the fan blades of GE Aviation’s F110 engine that powers the Falcon and Lancer.

– F110-GE-129 Engine (F-16 C/D Falcon)
– F110-GE-100 Engine (F-16 A/B Falcon)

– F101-GE-102 Engine (B-1B Lancer)

– Joint Strike Fighter

Production use of the laser peening on the fourth stage Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) for Pratt & Whitney’s F119-PW-100 engine, which powers the US Air Force’s F/A-22 Raptor, started at LSP Technologies in March 2003.  LaserPeen® processing increases the damage tolerance and enhances the fatigue performance of this IBR.
