Shot peening extends the working life of crucial aeroplane components. A factor of 100 times the working life can be achieved.
Aeroplane components are subject to constantly changing loads, so that the dangers of metal fatigue are always lurking around the corner. Shot peening is the proven solution for this. Straaltechniek has been applying this technique successfully for years on (for instance) undercarriages, turbine blades, discs and shafts.
Straaltechniek designs, develops and builds complete shot peening and high-end blasting installations for the aerospace industry and supplies these on a turnkey basis. Our solutions are fully adapted to the wishes and requirements of the customer while processes with a repetitive character are automated as far as possible.
We have vast knowledge of the extremely critical process specifications which have been drawn up by the engine and aeroplane OEMs. It is not without reason that our innovations in shot peening have enabled them to take a crucial step in their manufacturing processes.
The installations of Straaltechniek International Group of companies are eminently suitable for compliance with standards such as: NADCAP, AS9100, FAA and EASA.
Straaltechniek International Group of companies are one of the few companies worldwide that both design and manufactures automated shot peening & high-end blasting machines.
