    Technology | Controlled shot-peening...

Shot-peening is a controlled process used to increase the fatigue life of components and fabricated parts such as Racing car exhausts.

Whilst we have in-house shot-peening and are capable of low-volume and service requirements, we have a long-term relationship with Sandwell for all major shot peening requirements.


Shot-peening is the process of impacting materials with spherical media to impart energy to the surface of a component.

The amount of stress imparted to the material is proportional to the amount of energy applied. This energy introduces a surface and sub-surface compressive layer.

The introduction of this compressive nature reduces the effect that any applied tensile stresses may have on the material.
