shot peening machine

Explore the profound differences between shot peening and conventional blasting techniques, their benefits, applications across industries, and how CMV® offers comprehensive shot peening solutions tailored to diverse needs.

Differences between shot peening machine and conventional blasting

  • Angle of attack and release position of abrasive (spheres) against the workpiece.

  • Volume of abrasive launched.

  • Abrasive launching speed.

  • Abrasive rating, including size and roundness.

Benefits of shot peening

  • Forming (deforming or straightening workpieces).

  • Improves resistance to mechanical and thermal fatigue.

  • Enhances corrosion and friction resistance.

  • Allows size and weight reduction without compromising mechanical strength.

  • Eliminates directional risk of machining or micro-cracks, inhibiting crack propagation.


  • Automotive industry: springs, gears, torsion bars, rods, crankshafts, axles, and suspension arms.

  • Metalworking industry: cutting tools, stamping, forging (mostly cold).

  • Aerospace industry: Shot peening is extensively used, treating various components of turbines, structural parts, and landing gear.
