Spring Shot Peening
Spring Shot Peening
If you’re looking to overcome environmental stresses and boost service longevity, shot peening is an effective and economical solution for metal parts. Reach new performance levels with precision shot peening from Custom Spring Manufacturing.
Shot peening, which is also called shot blasting, is a cold-working process used to modify the mechanical properties of a workpiece. The part’s surface sustains multiple high-velocity shots from a peen hammer, achieving many performance benefits.
Advantages Of Shot Peening
A byproduct of the shot peening process is a dimpled surface finish. This can be advantageous for specific applications, creating a roughness that scatters light more effectively than processes like sandblasting. This process is typically reserved for springs with a wire or plate thickness of >1.5mm. It is not recommended for springs thinner than 1.5mm due to the process potentially damaging products.
- Adds Strength
- Increases Hardness
- Prevents Fatigue
- Reduces Stress Corrosion Failures
- Prolongs Product Lifespan
Your Custom Shot Peening Springs Source
