• Real-time diagnostics and selectable beam parameters for comprehensive process control

“This is the first opportunity for many European manufacturers to access an industrial laser peening system for application and product development research,” said David Lahrman, VP of Business Development for LSPT. “We’re introducing a superior fatigue enhancement solution to the European market, and we’re excited to form new partnerships in pursuit of stronger, more reliable components.”

Laser shock peening (LSP) is a powerful metal improvement process that produces a 10X fatigue life enhancement over shot peening. LSP utilizes a high-energy pulsed laser to generate controlled stress waves that impart compressive residual stresses up to 12 mm beneath the material surface. Laser peening has been proven to significantly extend the service life of metal parts by providing enhanced resistance to common failure mechanisms:

• Fatigue Cracking
• Stress Corrosion Cracking
• Foreign Object Damage
• Fretting Fatigue
• Creep Deformation
• Erosion

Laser peening improves the performance and reliability of metal components, adding value to critical parts across a broad range of industries:

• Aviation and Aerospace – Engine components, turbine blades, bulkheads, wing attachments, landing gear, helicopter components
• Automotive – Axles, drive shafts, valve stems, connecting rods, pistons, impellers
• Medical – Orthopedic implants, replacement joints, spinal fixation devices
• Power Generation – Land-based turbine blades and components, nuclear containment vessels, wind turbine gears
• Manufacturing – Metal forming dies, machine tools

LSP Technologies’ newest laser peening facility will reside in the heart of the Hamburg Aviation Cluster at the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research. The ZAL TechCenter is one of the largest and most advanced aeronautical research facilities in the world, offering an innovative research space for collaborative development of emerging technologies.

Montana Instruments Corporation announces the Cryostation Microscope, for high magnification physics experiments at 3 Kelvin!

Montana Instruments Corporation (Bozeman, MT), the world’s leading manufacturer of automated optical cryostats, announces the addition of the Microscope option to its closed cycle cryostat, the Cryostation™. Many low temperature material science experiments require high magnification optics to image the sample surface. Historically, this research has been limited to using objectives outside the vacuum space of the cryostats and dealing with the distortions of the vacuum window. This innovation allows user to position high quality optics near their sample without any intervening windows.

The system uses a 100X Zeiss quality objective with a working distance of 310 microns and a numerical aperture of 0.9, and can be outfitted with almost any vacuum compatible microscope objective.

A previous barrier to putting high quality objectives in the vacuum space of a low temperature system is that as a lens cools, its individual optical elements change shape, the optical performance degrades, and the lens may even crack. In order to prevent this damaging distortion, and to preserve the optical quality, a patent pending design maintains the lens at room temperature. By mounting the objective inside the temperature stabilized sample chamber, once the system reaches the target temperature, any drift due to temperature changes is eliminated.

The Cryostation has become a reliable workhorse for the low temperature research community. As a closed cycle cryostat, it doesn’t require costly helium for cooling, but uses a reliable refrigeration cycle cryocooler. The system is best known for its low vibrations of less than 5nm and its rock solid temperature stability of less than 10mK. Researchers appreciate the ease of access to their samples under test, both for setup and for optical access.

Pioneers in the world of cold science automation, Montana Instruments designs, manufactures, and supports cryostat systems around the world. Visit the company’s website at www.montanainstruments.com.

Lamp Post Electrical Has The Gate Opening Answer

Lamp Post Electrical now stock the excellent Came range of electric gate opening systems, which have made such an impression on the market place. These units are of excellent quality and allow the house entry gates to be used instead of being an ever open adornment to the property. Lamp Post Electrical is particularly pleased to be able to supply the Came Frog AE-P24 Kit which offers the complete underground fitting kit for a pair of swing gates. This particular unit offers the ability to open a pair of gates up to 3.5 metre wide for each leaf using a 24v DC motor. The easy opening and closing of gates ensures maximum usage and they will always be kept closed which gives security within the property and privacy as the front garden can in many cases now become an area which can be used without being
overlooked.

Lamp Post Electrical are delighted with the operational system of the Came electric gates and the silent running of the gates when opening and closing them is such that there is no possible annoyance to the family or neighbours. The Came Frog AE-P24 Kit is an underground kit which means that the swinging operating units are fitted into the ground at the outside end of each gate and the gate is mounted on top of the unit. The advantage of this is that the unit is particularly neat and tidy in its appearance or perhaps that should be non-appearance as all the operating mechanism is below ground and a flat top plate to the unit is all that is visible to the outside world. This installation provides the basis for a good reliable set up which will last for years.

Gate operation takes about 16 seconds so that it is slow enough for pedestrians to get out of the way although there is obvious safety cut outs if there is a problem and also release mechanisms if required. The typical opening is 90 degrees but this can be extended to 130 degrees with a suitable adaption of electronics and mechanism. The system is a robust one and the gate mechanisms can support gates up to a weight of 400kg for each leaf of the gate, which allows the installation of some very substantial gates.

Lamp Post Electrical – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – have worked hard to get the range right and Came are an excellent company who provide a good quality product which has been greatly enhanced by the Frog electronic control systems. The advantages of the operation of the Came Frog system of underground fitted gates is that they can be used from a distance to open and close them at will with the Came gate remote, which is ideal for the car driver arriving or leaving the premises.

It also allows the home owner to let in visitors from inside the house either by car with a double gate opening or by pedestrian access with a single gate opening. Lamp Post Electrical is proud to be able to stock such an excellent range of products, which will enhance any property to which they are installed.

Electrical Counter Now Can Supply Elnur Storage Heaters Of Great Versatility

It is fascinating how the increases and changes in technology can turn a system that seemed to have passed its heyday into a completely different and thriving system. The Elnur storage heaters systems are one of the most surprising elements in the distribution of energy used in the heating of household residences. Central Heating became just that, with a central boiler feeding a number of satellite radiators to supply heat throughout the house. Gas boilers became particularly cost effective due to the low price of gas compared to oil and electricity and bottled or tankered gases and the gas boilers have become very energy efficient units. Electrical Counter remembers when the storage radiator started as a pile of refractory bricks in a box which were heated by electrical heaters overnight and slowly released their heat as the cooled down. The system was effective to a certain level but temperature control and cost efficiency were limited.

The systems that Electrical Counter supply today have completely changed all this and the latest systems can be all singing and all dancing with a great temperature control and heat on demand. The heat input into the Elnur units which Electrical Counter supply is still carried out overnight to take care of using power in the low cost period that runs from about midnight until the early hours. The latest Elnur Heaters are excellently insulated with modern materials and heat losses from wastage are minimal. The control of heat release has now changed out of all proportion and the units are often fitted with the latest fan systems which control heat release but also allow a quick heat release. The days when a person comes home to a cold house and had to wait for hours to get warm have long since gone. The usage of a dynamic storage heater has now allowed the systems to be fitted to digital programmers so that the whole house can be warmed according to the demands of the users. This is a far cry from the system where the heaters were heated at night and slowly released the heat during the full day at a steady slow rate. The Electrical Counter systems encompass the whole house and the programming entails a full central heating system which can match the best gas heated systems without any of the waste gas products and flue problems associated with such units.

Lamp Post Now Stock Full In-Line Manrose Extractor Fan Range

Lamp Post Electrical supply all electrical equipment for the power circuits of the house and office and the Internet has allowed them to build a great business, which supplies the market at prices which are well below those of the standard retail outlets. Their typical website is both informative and descriptive so that a good idea of the product can be quickly gained. Any further information can be gained by e-mail or phone. The delivery service is what the customer wants it to be, but Lamp Post Electrical prides themselves on getting the goods quickly and safely to the customer.

The extraction fan business has become more and more complex over the years as the pollution rules and regulations have become stronger and this will change still further in the next few years as environmental and social conditions become stricter. The rules on extraction fans for the bathroom and washroom areas have always been strict because of the danger of water and electricity mixing and passing electrical currents to earth. The introduction of the 17th edition RCD controlled circuits has helped matters, but most installations still use off site extractor pumps to get rid of the unwanted steam and smells.

Lamp Post Electrical have supplied the Manrose CFD200T in line extractor fan for some time and it is a very reliable piece of equipment. The pump works on a typical 4 inch diameter extraction tube that connects to the waste exit of the bathroom to the extraction fan itself. The power of the extractor fan is such that it extracts some 85 cubic metres per hour very quietly and continuously. The fan is fitted in lime and into the line and extraction is not a problem as it will deal with all the typical problems that bathroom extractor fans may have during their normal operation. It should clear away all steam developed by the shower or the bath and leave the room dry, it will also remove obnoxious smells.

Lamp Post Electrical supply all the fittings and fixtures for the operation and the only real problem is where to fix the extractor fan into its final position as this obviously needs to be outside the bathroom. It can be fitted below the floor or above the ceiling but there will be a need for a suitably sized space and also the requirements in the case of an emergency so that future access may be possible to repair or replace easily. All that then remains is a suitable access for the extracted gases to be passed outside of the building through a tube and grill. If there are no suitable access routes then there are some extractor fans which can work in the bathroom or wash room environment without the need for the ultimate protection but these must be mounted so that they cannot be reached when standing in the bath or shower.

Manrose Centrifugal Extractor Fans Provide A Lamp Post Electrical Supplies Stalwart

Manrose are a company with a good history record in supplying everyday fans for the business and household market place and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies are delighted to keep stocking one of the stalwarts of the extraction fan markets in order to supply this ever changing market place. The Manrose centrifugal fan range has almost become a standard as it is able to deal with waste gases and extraction smells produced in the appropriate places. The centrifugal fan is the major part of this design with a central motor and controller which is built with fans with totally sealed bearing sets which require zero maintenance and bearing supports which last a long time. The centrifugal fan is basically a workhorse of the commercial or household market providing a strong fan which will operate continuously and effectively over many years. The areas where they come into their own are the commercial kitchen where vast quantities of waste gases need to be extracted (although there are smaller areas where they are equally useful).

Manrose Extractor Fans are recommended by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies as it is designed to aid and work effectively in pushing waste gases over long distances without a severe loss of pressure and therefore a loss of effective waste gas removal. They are very good at overcoming the pressure restrictions that have by nature been built into bends and grilles that may be inserted over the trunking range without serious reduction in pressure. This is particularly useful in some of the most modern commercial kitchens where the waste gas source is easy to pinpoint but the gases have then to be moved over long distances to extract then from the room. The reasons they have to be moved so far can be many but the usual reasons are that care must be taken not to remove the kitchen smells and then pump them straight outside the room where people are working or where they can percolate into a neighbouring house and remove the problem from one place to a neighbouring area. A failure in this region can bring problems resulting arguments with neighbours and potential guests or even prosecution by the local government officials. Any good workhorse requires a good working life and the Manrose pump has a normal working life of around 40,000 hours, obviously for Lamp Post Electrical Supplies replacement of kitchen extractor fans will not occur overnight but there is an ever increasing market place.

The centrifugal fan is a system that works well from small fans to the very large fans and they are extremely quiet in operation with virtually no vibration problems because of the centrally balanced motor. The smaller fans are aimed at the smaller markets and are aimed at bathrooms and toilets as well as small household kitchens where waste gas extraction is required.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – are proud to stock a full range of Manrose fans which can be delivered swiftly and effectively to repair breakdowns or deal with pressing problems and will be pleased to offer advice as and when required.

Class Portfolio of Laser Sources at Fabtech 2011

Coherent Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) (Nasdaq: COHR) showcased it’s new kilowatt class portfolio of laser sources at the Fabtech 2011 trade show held last month in Chicago, IL. The company updated its three-pronged kilowatt class strategy addressing the high power materials processing market, which includes laser cutting, welding, cladding and heat treating applications.

The company presented at the show a kilowatt version of its highly reliable, E-Series CO2 lasers called the DIAMOND E-1000. The DIAMOND E-1000 is a compact design that is up to 80% smaller than competitive offerings, requires no consumables and has been shown to cut metals at similar speeds as lasers with twice the power. In addition to saving space, the compact design allows the DIAMOND E-1000 to be mounted on a robot, eliminating the need for fiber delivery systems.

The DIAMOND E-1000 is joined by the Highlight 8000D, a kilowatt class direct-diode system, which was introduced in June 2011 during Laser Munich trade show. The HighLight 8000D features output powers up to 8 kW and is the most powerful, industrial, direct-diode laser system currently available with smart free space beam delivery – providing high power light in the shape and distance required by the application. With systems already deployed in the cladding market, HighLight 8000D enables the largest area at the highest deposition rate currently available.

Completing the three-pronged kilowatt class strategy is Coherent’s HighLight 1000FL fiber laser. This will be the first product in an OEM-focused kW to multi-kW fiber platform. It utilizes Coherent diode bars in a single step pump aggregation without service incompatible splices or gratings – all coupled into a 50 μm fiber delivery. This uniquely, simple architecture is more feedback resistant and is modular in design to enable future serviceability. The HighLight 1000FL is primarily targeted at cutting and welding of metals, such as mild and stainless steels, copper, aluminum, brass, titanium, and aluminum-magnesium.

The three kilowatt class strategy ensures that any material or process can be achieved using either CO2 lasers, direct-diode systems, or fiber lasers – all from Coherent.

Founded in 1966, Coherent, Inc. is a world leader in providing photonics based solutions to the commercial and scientific research markets and part of the Russell 2000. Please direct any questions to Frank Gaebler, Segment Marketing Director at 408-764-4000.
