Surface Enhancement Technologies

Deploying surface enhancement solutions using engineered residual compression

Surface Enhancement Technologies (SET) is charged with the successful deployment of Lambda Technologies’ surface treatment solutions, dedicated to the understanding and management of residual stress in metals. We engineer residual stress fields to mitigate high cycle fatigue (HCF), stress corrosion cracking (SCC), low cycle fatigue (LCF), fretting fatigue, corrosion fatigue, foreign object damage (FOD), corrosion pitting, and other damage mechanisms. Surface Enhancement Technologies is structured to deliver seamlessly integrated systems that mesh with the customer’s manufacturing and production operations. In addition, SET also processes components in-house using their patented, highly controlled surface treatments, such as Low Plasticity Burnishing (LPB®).
