Along with a variety of abrasive blasting services, Aamro offers shot peening. This is a cold working process in which small spheres of metallic, glass, or ceramic materials repeatedly impact a surface. The effect of the resultant compressive stress is to extend part life and improve fatigue resistance.
Shot peening has many uses. In addition to extending the metal fatigue life, it is used for sand removal, descaling, and surface texturing. We offer shot peening on most metals and can accommodate various part dimensions. Depending on the required specification, we can shot peen by hand or mechanical means, choosing from a variety of wheel machines and air blast cabinets. Typical shot peened parts include springs, castings, stampings, machined parts, and gears. We deal in small production lots to high volume and can certify to many industry and military standards.
