Engine Component Shot Peening
Aircraft engine components operating in high stress environments such as fan and compressor disks, blades, rotors and shafts are shot peened to increase their resistance to fatigue failure. The compressive residual stress introduced by peening will reduce and often negate any residual tensile stress occurring during the manufacturing process.
Wheelabrator automated airblast shot peening systems have been designed specifically for the aerospace industry’s exacting specifications. Using precision, multiple-axis nozzle manipulation in conjunction with part movement, the systems allow for flexibility and repeatability for the preparation of a wide variety of engine components.
All systems comply with international specifications and audits, such as AMS, Nadcap, MIL and various OEM specific requirements.
The machine types specified below are just examples of solutions that we could propose. However the majority of machines delivered to the aerospace sector are custom-designed to suit the precise application of the individual customer.
