Benefits of Laser Peening – March 2019 Webinar

Laser Peening already prevents damage to metal components, leading to lighter, less expensive, high performance parts

Laser peening can counteract metal fatigue, cracking, corrosion, fretting, erosion, cavitation, and other surface damages. Not only does laser peening prevent costly failures, but it also extends component lifetimes. The long-term benefits of laser peening will be even more dramatic in the future.

With added metal fatigue strength, engineers and designers can opt for lighter and less expensive parts, increasing the return on investment for the technology. This brings a secondary advantage to laser peening.

Why add cost to a part? Instead of relying on more expensive alloys or complicated designs, laser peening can increase your return while providing you with much more flexibility and an improvement in performance. “We are improving the fatigue life of these parts by 2, 5, to 10 times – meaning rather than using 2, 5, to 10 parts – you are only using 1. That’s when you start understanding how much the cost of applying this process is minor compared to the savings you are receiving,” Dr. Micheal Kattoura, highlights.

That’s a key message of the March 2019 webinar presentation by Dr. Kattoura, a materials scientist with LSP Technologies, in this short excerpt from his webinar presentation. To view the PowerPoint presentation, please download the file below the video.

The March webinar in our 2019 series is “The Laser Peening Prescription,” an overview of what laser peening is, how LSP Technologies delivers laser peening, and the benefits for metal components.

From LSP Technologies, you’ll hear from Stan Bovid, Director of Materials Research, and Micheal Kattoura, Materials Scientist, discussing a range of laser peening strategies for improving the fatigue life of metal components.

Register for the March 20 webinar now

Laser peening solutions typically extend the fatigue life of parts by five to 10 times their normal useful life, and some parts can last as much as 20 times longer.

We’ll discuss:

  • How the laser peening process works
  • How LSP Technologies develops custom solutions for parts
  • How to prevent, mitigate, or arrest cracking and corrosion
  • What kind of life extension is possible
  • Return on Investment

Moving the beam, not just the part

Here’s an excerpt from the February 2019 LSP Technologies webinar

In 2018, LSP Technologies introduced the world’s first commercially available laser peening system. In 2019, customers are driving even more dramatic innovations.

In this excerpt from the February 6, 2019 webinar, Chief Operating Officer Eric Collet describes a transformational challenge to LSP Technologies: Moving the laser beam delivery system itself to meet customer needs.

Traditionally, LSP Technologies has delivered laser peening with a fixed beam onto parts moving with precision while attached to robotic arms.

The Procudo® Laser Peening System was a revolution in itself, the only commercially available laser peening system, ideal for manufacturing, metal surface job shops and maintenance operations.

But then customers realized the potential. “Ultimately we’re responding to increased customer demand to be able to process larger parts and get into more complicated geometries. As we listen to the customers, we’re really looking to build, in addition to the Procudo® Laser Peening System, some specialized laser peening solutions that are flexible, portable and reliable.”

“We’re really stretching ourselves, freeing ourselves from that restriction of moving the part in front of the fixed beam, and actually taking the laser peening process to the part through being able to manipulate the beam delivery system. In some cases we’re leveraging the Procudo® Laser Peening System as the laser source. In some cases the laser peening solution is completely different.”

The dramatic change is laser beam delivery has led to a vastly expanded LSP Technologies team in mechanical engineering, optical technology, design, and automation. Laser peening will be delivered via fiber optics, special articulated arms, and other systems.

Webinar rescheduled to February 6 – The Year Ahead in Laser Peening

Please join CEO Jeff Dulaney and COO Eric Collet for a live webinar on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. EST.

You’ll see an inside view of the Future of Laser Peening technology and the innovative customer applications coming soon from LSP Technologies.

We’re not just moving the parts to accommodate fixed-beam lasers anymore. Now we’re moving laser beam delivery mechanisms and creating portable laser peening systems to treat hard-to-reach areas of mission-critical metal components.

Please take a moment to register now!
