Steel shot for shot peening

Shot Blasting uses fine steel media to clean, descale and remove rust from parts. Parts are "sprayed" with shot, similar to sandblasting, revealing the original bright metallic appearance. The restored surface has a uniform luster, optimized for lube adhesion.


Shot peening is a cold working process in which the surface of a spring is bombarded with small spherical media called steel shot. Each piece of shot striking the surface creates a small indentation or dimple. Peening is now frequently used as an alternative to polishing where directional scratches can propagate minute cracks. It is ideal for the treatment of fillets, grooves or unsupported edges or anywhere where sudden changes in form occur.
