Wheelabrator organized a technical seminar on "Shot Peening Technology" in June at Gurgaon, India. The session mainly focused on influencing factors for peening, how shot peening technology aids in better performance and longevity in auto parts which are subject to cyclic loading including clutch, engine parts, gears, transmission and suspension parts. A brief on high end Wheel and Air peening solutions was presented.
Shot Peening is used widely to enhance the fatigue resistance of highly stressed metallic components. This in turn, improves the performance of safety-critical components. Any metallic component that is subjected to cyclic stresses within its elastic limit can benefit from the shot peening process.
With participation of over 45 delegates from across 27 companies, the seminar was extremely well received by the audience with special commendation given to Wheelabrator for its efforts toward providing details to automotive stakeholders. The major automotive companies that attended the event included - HMCL, Hi Tech Gears, Escorts, M&M Auto, Jamna Auto, Techno Springs, AMTEK and Sona Okegawa.
