Streaming metal particles of S70-S460 steel media, our shot peening processes use medium-sized wheel blast machines or air blast cabinets (producing compressed air) to modify the mechanical properties of metals.
For larger parts, we can also use a monorail which prevents the parts from impinging on each other during this operation.
Shot peening provides parts with much-needed stress relief and surface strengthening effectively eliminating microscopic defects in the thin surface shell of the part.
Our shot peening operations can handle hundreds of smaller parts to thousands of larger parts within quick, 2-3 day lead times.
From brackets to brake pads, our shot peening operations have prepared the surfaces of diverse items for multiple industries. For more information about our high-quality shot peening capabilities, Contact DeLong today!
