Wind and gas turbines must be able to withstand extremely high loads. They are exposed to fluctuating stresses and gas turbine blades must be resistant to high temperatures. This combination can give rise to metal fatigue and subsequent breakage. Shot peening is the proven solution here, the technique which Straaltechniek has been successfully applying for years as the innovator in this field.
Straaltechniek designs, develops and builds complete shot peening and high-end blasting installations for the energy sector 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 are eminently suitable for compliance with standards such as: NADCAP, AS9100, FAA and EASA.
