Suction Shot Peening Machines
Shot peening machines with suction units are used for parts that require a less aggressive finish than standard shot peening machinery provides. These machines are used mainly in the aerospace industry to finish large airframe parts and other components that require an even, exact finish over the entire surface area. Engineered Abrasives® peening suction units provide high performance, effective blasting for large aerospace parts.
Using less abrasive media, including glass beads, ceramic, Fine Steel®, small steel shot and plastic media, suction blast machines are used for parts that do not require the compression strength or fatigue life that structural and high stress parts require. They softer shot also prepares the part for additional finishing if required.
Custom Pressure Shot Peening Machines
- Fixed or flexible guns.
- Flexible loading and unloading mechanisms.
- Adjustable media feed and air pressure.
- Gun rods, holders and locking bolts manufactured of A2 Steel.
- Polyurethane-lined units.
- Sealed cabinets.
Automation ensures that the blast nozzles are positioned with precision and that the entire part is covered during blasting. These machines are designed to finish large parts to the most exacting tolerances.
