Superior Shot Peening & Coatings has peened almost every commercial metal known to man. Our shop is equipped with various peening equipment set-ups, which allows us to address every peening application — from the most basic parts to the most sophisticated components.
In addition to the broad range of equipment we use for shot peening, we stock virtually all types of hardnesses and sizes of peening abrasives. This allows us to provide the broadest range of shot peening specifications for your project.
Understanding Shot Peening Specifications
Shot peening specifications are important, as this determines the effectiveness of the end result.
There are industry requirements and standards for metals, ceramics, and even plastics and glass used in shot peening. These materials and/or products have to be inspected and verified before they can be approved for production and put into use.
While there are 20+ shot peening specifications used in the industry, we are going to focus on five to get you started.
- AMS 2431/1 (SAE-Cast Steel Shot, Regular Hardness)
- AMS 2431/2 (SAE-Cast Steel Shot, High Hardness)
- AMS 2431/3 (SAE-Conditioned Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot, Regular Hardness)
- AMS 2431/4 (SAE-Conditioned Stainless Steel Cut Wire Shot)
- AMS 2431/5 (SAE-APB Case Hardened Steel Peening Balls)
These five specifications are important for a number of reasons. The code helps to identify the type of equipment and material associated with it. This helps determine what tools and machinery will be needed to build, test, correct, and provide a certified, quality-assured product that can withstand the multitude of conditions that each part or component will be exposed to.
The Results of Selecting the Right Shot Peening Specification
It is important to understand what specifications are required for optimal performance. Every type of metal, glass, and ceramic piece — whether standalone or one of many — has to be made and processed according to precise specifications. This step ensures the output is hardened and coated to ensure maximum results.
Our experienced team understands how to carefully select the right shot peening specification for the specific needs of your job. We also utilize the latest industry equipment to deliver a consistent peened finish each time. Consider these results when our expertise is applied to your parts or components:
- Increase fatigue strength of new and damaged parts.
- Enhance lubricity by creating small pores for lubricants to accumulate.
- Permit the use of hard steels by reducing brittleness.
- Close surface porosity in coatings.
- Allow for the substitution of lighter materials without sacrificing strength and durability.
- Curve or straighten shafts without creating tensile stress.
- Increase overall functionality.
