Surface Engineering

Shot Peening

This process is used to improve the resistance to failure by fatigue. Generally fatigue failures occur from tensile stresses built up within the component. The shot peening process creates a compressively stressed layer at the surface of the component, significantly reducing the risk of failure.

Phosphating

The manganese phosphate process provides a thick coating to components which are required to work under heavy loads often at high temperatures.
