Laser peening specialist LSPT to move to larger facility

Nov. 27, 2018
The laser peening company will continue serving customers during the transition from its current headquarters and plant.

Laser peening services and equipment provider LSP Technologies (LSPT; Dublin, OH) has acquired a 65,000-sq-ft. facility at 6161 Shamrock Ct. in Dublin. The company will continue serving customers during the transition from its current headquarters and plant, and the transition will be complete in early 2019.

The move represents a signifcant expansion for the company, as the new facility will support a growing workforce and provide the ability to handle larger customer components onsite. The company employs more than 50 full-time staff—more than twice its workforce from 2017—including more than 35 engineers, technicians, designers, and technical support staff.

Laser peening, often called laser shock peening, is a metal enhancement technology used to combat metal fatigue and extend the life of metal parts. Short laser pulses create a shock wave at the surface of the part, changing metal surfaces to counteract corrosion, cracking, and vibration stress.

The company has provided laser peening for many mission-critical parts in aircraft manufacturing, power generation, automotive, and heavy equipment, including gears, drive shafts, and turbine engine blades. Laser peening extends metal part life up to 20X, lowering costs and minimizing maintenance and downtime.

The company provides laser peening services onsite, and it also sells its Procudo laser peening system for customer factory installations. The company has also developed laser bond inspection technology, a nondestructive testing for adhesively bonded structures, and laser peen forming, which uses precise laser peening patterns to shape, or straighten, curved metal surfaces.
