How does it work?
Shot peening is the process of firing small balls of either metal, glass or ceramic material at a metal surface to plastically deform it, and apply a constant compressive stress. The impacted and stressed surface prevents the formation and propagation of cracks and is also often work hardened.
Shot peening can be utilised as a stand alone process for a customer or in combination with a series of coating and heat treatment processes.
