Shot peeningis used for surface hardening of mechanical parts running under toughest conditions and are subject to extreme wear. Shot peening can increase fatigue life up to 1000%.
Where Is This Surface Treatment Applicable?
Shot peening is used on gear parts, cams and camshafts, clutch springs, coil springs, connecting rods, crankshafts, gearwheels, leaf and suspension springs, rock drills, and turbine blades.
Shot peening is a crucial process in spring making.
Shot peening may be used for cosmetic effect - overlapping dimples causes light to scatter upon reflection
Shot peening can apply materials on metal surfaces – peen plating. When the shot or grit particles are blasted through a powder or liquid containing the desired surface coating, the impact plates or coats the workpiece surface.
For the purpose of performing regular maintenance shot peening of landing gear and solving difficult problem of challenging geometry with different intensity requirements we developed versatile and flexible two interconnected robotic chambers system.
Machine is designed to provide Shot peening services for trial purposes or full scale production peening of their products. Shot peening cell is composed form a number of important assemblies. The first is the chamber itself, with the dimensions of the 6x5x5m in which we can find a robot with 6 axes.
Peen forming is a die-less cold forming process performed at room temperature with procedure of shot peening. The peen forming process is ideal for forming large panel shapes where the bend radii are reasonably large without abrupt changes in contour.
