Shot Peening

Increase the resistance of your “high-tech” elements to dynamic loads and extend their service life by as much as 1000x.

Shot Peening is entrusted to us by:

Fortification that is unparalleled

Improve the mechanical properties of metals

Shot Peening reduces the possibility of failure of key safety components after welding and machining.

Advantages of Shot Peening

We provide greater strength, longer service life and 100% repeatability of the process.

Why Shot Peening?

When it comes to improving the strength and durability of metals, there is no better method in the world than “shot peening”.

In 1982, NASA began using it to strengthen rocket parts, and now it is the gold standard in the automotive, aerospace and other industries.

Working principle

Shot Peening is a modern version of the method used by blacksmiths in ancient times to forge their products.

The medium, round in shape, acts as a micro hammer when hitting the workpiece, making small dents.

These are smoothed into a flat, hard surface with a large number of strokes.

This creates a layer of compression stresses, which virtually eliminates the possibility of breaking the structure of the workpiece.

Examples of use by industry

Shot Peening is used to strengthen crankshafts, connecting rods, gears, various types of springs and turbine blades, wing elements, landing legs of aircraft, safety screws and much more.
