Shot-Peening Line

Background

Improving Performances

Shot peening is our leading treatment, the culmination of particularly thorough and detailed study by the research centre and our Peen Service subsidiary. It is a treatment designed to improve the fatigue strength of cemented, nitrided or reclaimed parts. The treatment can reach considerable depth and is often used to slow or eliminate breakage associated with stress corrosion, fretting, pitting and to reduce the negative effects associated with the decarburisation of surfaces. In aviation environments it is also used before applying galvanic coating to eliminate the embrittlement caused by the application of the layer. Our systems are designed with the maximum technology to strictly meet the specific needs of this particular treatment, characterised by numerous specifications and extreme application complexity. Our machines are designed to give each single piece the same treatment through the rigorous control of all process characteristics like job pressure, hot spot location, blasting angle, grit size, shape and flow, the speed of shifting and rotation of the various drives. Our solutions are fully compatible with and certified under NADCAP specifications and are compatible with the typical guidelines of industry certifications.
Depending on the case, with Peen Service, our subsidiary specialised in shot-peening, we can offer outsourcing treatment on all components of this industry, both for fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.
