Main differences between shot blasting and shot peening machines:
• The angle of attack, the abrasive (spheres) release position against the workpiece.
• The volume of abrasive launched.
• Abrasive launching speed.
• Abrasive rating (size, roundness).
Benefits of shot peen
• Forming (deforming or straightening workpieces, also known as peen forming).
• Allows to reduce the size and weight without compromising the mechanical resistance.
• Improves the resistance to mechanical and thermal fatigues.
• Improves corrosion and friction resistance.
• Eliminates the directional risk of machining or micro-cracks, inhibiting crack propagation.
Shot peen machine applications
• Automotive industry: springs, gears, torsion bars, rods, crankshafts, axles and suspension arms.
• Metalworking industry: cutting tools, stamping, forging (mostly cold).
• Aerospace industry: which is the one that mainly uses shot peening machines, lots of the components of aircraft are treated with shot peening, including various components of turbines, structural and landing gear.
We can provide not only the equipment but a complete solution for many different applications of shot peening. Beyond producing shot peening machines systems, by blast wheel, pressure, suction, wet (in cases where severe restrictions on roughness exist) or a combination of two or more, these systems are equipped with the most efficient methods to monitor all process variables.
CMV® has the means to specify the parameters of shot peen and train operators, create process routines, and inspection plans and train shot peening inspectors. The shot peening machines we produce meet the process, or productivity needs an integrated system with CN, CNC or robotics, both in handling the parts treated as for movement of the nozzles or shot peening guns.
