  • shot peening;
  • peen forming process automation;
  • automated peening processes


The market increasingly expects stable and automated processes with high process reliability and practical flexibility in design.

Controlled and automated peening processes have put an end to the trial and error approach to the shot peening process and facilitate clear description of the influences of forming on the material. Each processing step can be traced and identified at any time. Thus, the lack of clarity which characterized the shot peening process has given way to transparency, resulting in an industrial process which permits a breakdown of the individual steps.
