Essential service providers in heavy-duty industries often need to enhance the usability and durability of critical parts. There are many different options to enhance the critical parts to your expensive field equipment.
The ideal method we recommend is using finishing treatments such as shot blasting and shot peening. The parts can be treated at various stages of the life cycle (post-manufacture before entering use, repair, restoration, and refurbishment) using specialized equipment.
The result will be longer life span, fewer maintenance requests, greater functionality when used in field equipment, and less costly downtime in the field.
Shot Blasting and Shot Peening Equipment Uses
When thinking about shot blasting and shot peening equipment, consider these key attributes and uses that will yield the desired results for your parts.
Shot Blasting Equipment
At Superior Shot Peening & Coatings, we utilize Shot Blasting & Deburring equipment that provides a broad spectrum of surface preparation options.
Our equipment can be used to address defects, smooth out edges, and restore surfaces to support the usefulness of parts at the various stages of their life cycle:
- Pre-thermal spray
- Pre-powder coat
- Restoration to original condition
- Repurposing of part for new use
Our shot blasting equipment is supported by a proven system that will provide the maximum cleanliness and anchor pattern for the desired final coating without causing any damage to the part.
We also stock a full line of abrasives such as steel, ceramic, glass, aluminum oxide, black beauty, and stainless steel to create the ideal surface consistency for the desired application.
We use these abrasives to scrape corrosion, burrs, flash, and other undesired particles from the parts, leaving the parts ready for further protective coatings, pre-treatments, and restoration efforts.
Shot Peening Equipment
As the industry leader in shot peening, we are equipped with various peening set-ups to provide the ideal treatment for critical parts. We utilize equipment ranging from basic manual cabinets and enclosures to the most highly-automated pie controlled systems.
In addition to offering a broad range of equipment, we stock virtually all levels of hardness and sizes of peening abrasives. This allows us to provide the broadest possible range of peening specifications to meet the needs of your parts.
Because of the number of shot peening machines that we have in our shops, we can process parts of different sizes and shapes with consistent and accurate results.
Additionally, our shot peening equipment can be used to provide an additional level of treatment beyond the capabilities of shot blasting. Oftentimes, corrosion is not visible on damaged or worn parts. Sub-surface corrosion is particularly common in areas directly surrounding metal fasteners, screws, and nails. We are equipped to use search peening to meet this need.
The search peening application is preferable to many other corrosion removal methods because it strengthens the part while removing the hidden corrosion in problem areas. It’s a dual benefit to enhance the durability of the part while also addressing the corrosion.
