In LITS, a heat source (Laser) applies the
concentrated heat to a localized spot on the part. Through
software N. A. Technologies has developed, we can accurately
determine how much curvature will result form a set of parameters.
It needs to be stated that there are no external forces
acting on the sample to form it, just the heat from the
laser. The theory behind LITS is summarized in the slide
|We are currently working on several projects using the LITS.
LITS can be applied to all sorts of shapes and sizes of materials.
Listed below are just a few of our results from laser forming.
1. 5/8 Diameter
80Y100T Tube Laser Formed to 40°
2. Three inch Diameter Aluminum Tube Formed to approximately
Figure 3. Four inch Diameter Steel Tube Formed
to approximately 30°
4. One inch
thick steel laser formed to a bowl shape
