Shot Peening is a controlled metal surface finishing process used to increase the fatigue life of components and fabrication.
Elgamec has many years experience in the world of Shot Peening. All our processes are carried out by hand, which provides the same high standard of process and finish each time.
Shot Peening is the most cost effective and practical method of inducing surface residual compressive stresses which enhance performance and extend the life of critical components.
The process of Shot Peening creates a compressive surface layer that extends into the material and has the effect of reducing any subsequent tensile fatigue loads. It is used as a final process post heat treatment and post final machining, except in special cases.
We can shot peen a range of components from small milled or turned parts to large fabrications and castings, from one off to multiple batches.
If you have a specific requirement or application then contact us and we will be happy to help.
We pride ourselves on quality of service and quick turnaround. All our work is returned with a certificate of conformity.
