Hazardous Environments and Novel Component Requirements Spur Custom Laser Equipment Strategies

David Lahrman, VP of Business Development for LSP Technologies, discusses current breakthroughs in developing durable laser peening solutions for maintenance depots, whether parts are large, small, or just complex. LSP Technologies introduced its Procudo® Laser Peening System as a standard product for sale or lease three years ago. But custom versions of the Procudo® System now dominate its work.
