Shot peening is a cold working process, designed to increase the fatigue strength of components which are subject to high alternating stress. It converts tensile residual strain into a compressive residual strain which results in significant increases in the life cycle of parts and their extreme load capacities. Its main benefit is the delay or prevention of cracks in extremely tensile stressed alloy components. Shot peening machines are used to make quality products by creating plastic deformation in metal & composites. The machines enable the development of products with superior surface characteristics to meet market demand. It is extensively used in the aviation and space industries. Examples of the machine from the field of shot peening are satellite table machines, rotary table machines, and swing table blast machines.
