Shot peening is a solution for intensive use of industrial components under mechanical or thermal fatigue. It is a high technology process that uses blasting, cleaning up the surface. In this process, the residual tension of parts switches to a residual compression effort. Shot peening can be used on treatment surfaces such as grinding, milling, folding or thermal treatment. It is commonly used in the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries.
In the past, the hammer was used to increase the hardness of gold. As new technologies came and manufacturing evolved, shot peening gained strength and became a trend.
The result generated by shot peening is an increase the lifespan and the capacity of the parts. In addition, it improves the metallurgical characteristics, eliminates cracks and brings more resistance to friction.
