Shot peening is an operation of cold surface hammering performed normally for multiple purposes. Using a jet of pellets or small cylinders of cast iron, steel or glass generated by air pressure or by centrifugal force of a vane turbine, shot peening has the purpose of heightening the fatigue resistance of the treated material but not only. Shot peening in fact is also exceptionally used for non-ferrous materials such as brass, bronze, magnesium, titanium aluminum and its alloys.
Shot peening purposes

The compressions induced in the surface layers subjected to the hammering of the shot, in addition to increasing the fatigue strength, slightly increase the hardness, generate a matt finish and multidirectional, bend and straighten the parties and in some cases improve the porosity of the machined surfaces and the heat-treated. In our processing cycle - for working conditions as well as ensuring good results in terms of technology and economically, ensuring a certain efficiency also ecologically and security - are employed cutting-edge machines and related power equipment, each of which is intended to fulfill a very specific type of work. The type of the items that can be blasted is very broad and diverse both in form, in all sizes and weights.
The shot peening, understood as processing in its own right, it is often employed for stainless steel, on which generates a pleasing satin finishing; They can also be shot peened particularly complex shapes through the preparation of a manual station with external access, equipped with a reduced gun size, which allows to direct the nozzle even in complex parts and spots.
