In spring manufacturing, shot peening is used substantially where the benefits of the operation are used principally to enhance the life of the spring.
The typical springs that require shot peening are.
- Compression Springs
- Torsion Springs
- Valve Springs
- Coil Springs
- Die Springs
- Leaf Springs
- Torsion Bars
- Specialised Fasteners
After the shot peening the springs may need a secondary surface treatment these may include (if required).
- Stress relieving by heat treatment
- Powder coating
The main benefits of spring shot peening are
- Increase of fatigue life
- Increase of corrosion fatigue resistance
- Increase of stress corrosion cracking resistance
- Increase of surface hardness
Increase of surface roughness of springs allows for better surface for the coatings to adhere better to the springs.
