Two Tracks for Abrasive Waterjets

Waterjet technology, cutting materials with a jet of water, is proceeding down two parallel paths. The first involves more advanced machines, operating with more sophisticated software finding the right mix of pressure and speed, producing parts faster.

The Latest Runway for Aerospace Technology from Around the World

Ohio-based LSPT—its name stands for Laser Shock Peening Technologies—is busy preparing to test the use of exploding vapor from water heated by a laser beam to create tiny deformations in the surface of materials used to build aircraft, to improve crack propagation—and therefore fatigue behavior—in the area.
