This is a cold surface treatment of metals with round-shaped media, under precisely set and metered processing conditions in chambers or directly on the workpiece.
When the medium hits the workpiece, it functions like a micro hammer, making small dents. With a large number of hits, the dents level out. A layer of compression tension is thus created on the surface, practically cancelling out the possibility of the workpiece structure breaking. Another term for surface hardening is shot peening, since the process resembles peening.
Surface hardening is used for parts exposed to high dynamic stress, which are key for operation safety:
The shot peening method, with its specific characteristics, is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.
