What is Shot Blasting?

Shot Blasting is a surface finishing technique that involves rapidly impacting the surface of an object with a controlled stream of abrasive shot material. It is faster and more effective than filing for removing flash that my remain on a part after the casting or stamping process.

Shot Blasting is also used for removing burrs, scale and rust that may interfere with the part’s integrity, appearance or definition. Shot blasting can also prepare the surface of a part for coating by removing surface contaminants and provide a surface profile for increased coating adhesion.

By varying the type of shot, we can Shot Blast a wide variety of materials. For example, a smaller size steel shot can be used to produce a smooth, polished surface, while a larger shot can aggressively remove heavy flash.

 

What is Shot peening?

Improving Resistance To Fatigue

Shot peening is a process specifically designed to enhance the fatigue strength of components which are subject to high alternating stress.

Surface treatment procedures like grinding, milling, bending or heat treatment procedures cause Tensile Residual Stress. This Tensile Residual Stress leads to low life cycles of the parts. Shot Peening converts Tensile Residual Stress into Compressive Residual Stress which leads to significant increases in the life cycle of parts and their maximum load capacities.

 

How to Choose your Abrasives?

The impact power and coverage of steel abrasive is governed by its mass and velocity in accordance with equation of kinetic energy.

Ke = 1/2 MV2 (Where Ke = Kinetic Energy M= Mass V= Velocity).

The impact force delivered to the work piece will change only if the mass factor (i.e. the abrasive size) is altered.

The economy and performance of blast cleaning depends upon the abrasives used. The proper size and type of abrasives and its quality is most important. The following three factors should be considered while selecting the abrasives.

(a) Area of job surface these can clean

(b) Quality of work produced

(c) Cost of the shot

We have expert engineers having 40 years of experience in the line of shot blasting /peening who can provide you total solutions to any issues or queries related to it.
