Component failure is very often related to the residual tensile strength that has been induced during the manufacturing process.
During the components working life it may be subject to severe and/or unexpected conditions and this can lead to the premature failure of the component or assembly it is part of.

Typical examples of this type of failure can be any of the following:

  • Corrosive Fatigue
  • Fretting
  • Galling
  • General Wear
  • Inter-granular Corrosion
  • Metal Fatigue
  • Spalling
  • Stress Corrosion Cracking

Aerotek Aviation Shot Peening processes are among the most cost effective and practical methods of meeting customer requirements and specifications.

The shot peening processes utilised by Aerotek Aviation achieve these positive results by the induction of a surface residual compressive stress to the component which then results in the enhancement of the performance, thereby extending its life cycle, especially important for critical components.

Aerotek Aviation is able to provide this service so that it meets the individual customer requirements and specifications, as well as any international standards that maybe required.
