Listen to LSPT’s latest webinar with this free, on-demand recording.
This informational podcast, “Laser Peening Surface Enhancement to Prevent Metal Cracking and Failure” was presented live on November 29th in partnership with SME Media, and covered the fundamentals of Laser Shock Peening and Laser Peening Equipment.
The recording is available to listen any time for the next year at advancedmanufacturing.org.
This special event features a panel of experts from LSPT and ZAL discussing cutting-edge aerospace research. The focus will be on Laser Shock Peening applications at the state-of-the-art ZAL TechCenter in Hamburg.
Topics will include:
An overview of Laser Shock Peening: how it works, the material benefits and industry applications.
Advances in Laser Peening equipment and technology that have increased throughput and process control for high-volume production processing.
The next generation of Laser Peening applications, highlighted by advanced development at the ZAL TechCenter in Hamburg, Germany.
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.
