Session will last approximately one hour
Topics will include:
- Overview of the laser peening process and comparison with shot peening applications
- Comparing residual stress profiles of laser peened and shot peened components in different materials
- Case studies outlining fatigue and performance characteristics of laser peened and shot peened components
- Live Q&A session at the end
Laser peening produces deep compressive residual stresses that extend component service lifetimes and improve performance. The key to laser peening’s effectiveness is the generation of a powerful shockwave – but how does this process enhance the metal surface?

Laser Bond Inspection Detects Critical Flaws in Bonded Structures
Kissing bonds present a serious defect in bonded structures. Kissing bonds occur when bonded surfaces are in intimate contact but possess no mechanical strength. This typically results from manufacturing faults surrounding surface and adhesive preparation, and these flaws can lead to premature failure. Kissing bonds are notoriously difficult to detect, and can’t be identified through most nondestructive inspection methods.
LSPT’s Laser Bond Inspection (LBI) technology is the only known nondestructive method for evaluating bond strength and detecting kissing bonds. LBI performs real-time detection using a laser-generated stress wave and an EMAT or VISAR signal. This live webinar highlight explains how LBI is used in conjunction with VISAR to detect kissing bonds.
