Tooling and General heat Treatment have recently introduced shot peening to the range of services available to our clients.
Shot peening is a cold working impact process that uses a high velocity blast stream of millions of hardened steel spheres. Each shot acts as a mini ball peen hammer striking the surface and forming a tiny dimple. The material below the surface tries to counteract the strain resulting in a layer of cold worked metal stressed in compression. The compressively stressed zone resists crack initiation and propagation, increasing the service life of the part.
Shot peening will:
- Increase fatigue life of parts
- Prevent incidence/propagation of stress corrosion cracks.
Typical uses: Gears, shafts, corrosive environment parts (eg pumps), springs, torsion bars, pins, suspension parts
