The Effects of Shot Peening

The definition of Shot Peen is the process of repeatedly and evenly striking the surface of the part with shot in a controlled manner that is similar to hammering a surface with a ball peen hammer to create compressive stress. The Shot Peening Process can reduce fatigue on metal parts that may lead to cracking or corrosion.
