OVERVIEW

Progress Rail’s proprietary Magnetostrictive UIT system is an electromechanical process where ultrasonic energy is converted into mechanical energy.  When applied to metal/fabricated structures, the UIT process imparts compressive residual stress, mitigates harmful tensile stress and modifies weld toe geometry and improves grain structure.

  • Extends Fatigue Life of Welds
  • Modifies & Strengthens the Grain Structure
  • Localized Stress Mitigation
  • Distortion Control

The UIT process can be used in place of TIG Toe Dressing or Burr Grinding to modify weld toe geometry and impart beneficial compressive Residual Stress. Progress Rail’s proprietary Magnetostrictive (UIT) technology and application process is faster, easier to apply, more consistent and the safest option. These benefits translate into extended fatigue life for manufactured and repaired structures and components, such as; machined parts, weld repairs on frames, structures, buckets, truck bodies, bridges, light and utility poles, transmission towers, highway sign structures and many other types of fabricated structures. Progress Rail’s highly portable, 100% duty cycle industrial equipment is easily mobilized to remote job sites. Our extensive tooling options can be tailored to meet your application requirements. The Progress Rail UIT systems only requires 120 VAC power to create ultrasonic energy, provide true Hi-Frequency energy, at or above 25 kHz, strengthening the metal structure’s ability to withstand dynamic loading forces.

FEATURED

APPLICATIONS

Stress Corrosion Cracking

Progress Rail's Ultrasonic Technology (UIT) can be used to mitigates the effects of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC). The UIT process can be used on most materials susceptible to stress corrosion cracking to minimize and/or arrest the propagation of stress corrosion cracking. The UIT has been used successfully during weld repairs series 5000 aluminum and a variety of steels.

 

Distortion Mitigation

The UIT process can be used for localized weld stress relaxation w/o the application of heat. When the UIT process is applied to the surface of a weld, the UIT process neutralizes the tensile stress created during weld solidification and relaxes the welded structure reducing and/or eliminating distortion. In addition to minimizing distortion, the UIT process aids in dimensional control.

Fatigue Life Extension

Take control of crack initiation points with Progress Rail’s proprietary Magnetostrictive (UIT) technology. When the UIT process is applied to a weld toe, the weld toe geometry is modified creating a more fatigue friendly geometry.  Further, as the weld toe geometry is modified by plastically deformation (cold work), compressive residual stress is imparted into heat affective zone (HAZ) improving grain structure and strength.

 

Cold Work Stress Relief

In industry there are four types of equipment and processes that provide cold work and impart compressive residual stress: Shot Peening, Needle Peening, Hammer Peening, and Ultrasonic Impact Peening (UIT). Each of these processes plastically deform the surface of materials being worked, providing cold work to the surface and imparting compressive residual stress. Each of these processes provide different level of compressive residual stress, the Progress Rail’s proprietary Magnetostrictive (UIT) technology provides the highest energy level resulting in more cold working in the shortest time with the greatest benefit.
