|Pressemitteilung von: Lambda Technologies|
(openPR) - Cincinnati, Ohio – May 30, 2008, – U.S. Congressman Steve Chabot (R), 1st District of Ohio, visited Lambda Technologies on Tuesday, May 27, 2008 for a tour, production demonstration and technical briefing regarding the exciting surface enhancement work being accomplished by the Cincinnati-based company.|
A walking tour of Lambda's Laboratory Services and Surface Enhancement Technologies facilities was hosted by Lambda Technologies CEO and Director of Research, Paul S. Prevey. Mr. Chabot witnessed a Low Plasticity Burnishing (LPB) demonstration of Lambda's successful production program to improve foreign object damage (FOD) tolerance and high cycle fatigue endurance limits while completely mitigating cracking of the Ti-6Al-4V Alloy F402 First Stage Low Pressure Compressor (LPC1) Vane used in the AV-8B Harrier II.
LPB is a surface enhancement process that has been demonstrated to improve the life and performance of expensive and critical aircraft components such as landing gear, propeller hubs, and turbine engine blades.
Congressman Chabot's reputation for providing excellent constituent service was exhibited by his eagerness to learn of LPB’s cost-cutting benefits and his discussions with the Lambda Technologies staff on methods of transitioning the LPB technology to military and commercial markets. Congressman Chabot was accompanied by Kevin Fitzpatrick, Staff Director of the U.S. House of Representatives Small Business Committee. The entire staff at Lambda Technologies would like to sincerely thank both gentlemen for the time they spent at our facilities.
