NanoSteel Introduces EverShot™

Extreme High Hardness and Durability for Peening to Precise Specifications

  • Ferrous micro peening alloy designed to impart exceptional compressive stresses while minimizing dimensional distortions
  • Ideal for parts with high hardness, small size, complex geometries or small radii
  • Lasts up to 70x longer than ceramic and 9x longer than other high hardness ferrous micro shots


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Wednesday, February 19, 2013) – The NanoSteel® Company, a leader in nano-structured steel materials design, today announced the introduction of its proprietary EverShot™ ferrous micro peening alloy. The new material combines high hardness with a low breakage rate which allows the shot peening of parts to precision specifications. The exceptional durability of the EverShot™ peening media dramatically increases operational efficiencies leading to higher throughput and lower processing costs.
“Compared to both ceramic and ferrous microshot media, EverShot™ enables the shot peening of parts to tighter dimensional requirements at significantly improved uptimes.” said Harald Lemke, NanoSteel’s vice president and general manager of powder metallurgy. “The media is ideal for the shot peening of small parts and parts with small radii or complex geometries such as gears, springs and threads.”
In a customer test conducted by NanoSteel’s development partner Superior Shot Peening in Houston, the EverShot™ media with an average shot particle size of 83 microns (0.0033 inches) generated intensities equal to CW14 steel cut wire shot while providing a more uniform level of compression. “NanoSteel’s micro shot is extremely durable and generates the most uniform level of sub-surface compressive stresses that I’ve seen from any media other than ultrasonic shot peening,” said Dan Spinner, Superior Shot Peening’s director of technology. “The high hardness of the NanoSteel ferrous micro shot results in a deeper impact than existing ferrous micro shots without additional workhardening.”
Competitive benchmarking shows that an EverShot™ cut lasted up to 70x longer than ceramic and 9x longer than other high hardness ferrous micro shot. This substantially higher durability provides more consistent surface quality and improved uptime from less frequent material replacement while lowering process waste.

EI shot peening training program has new name, new look, new site

EI Shot Peening Training homepageMishawaka, Indiana – June 3, 2013. Electronics Inc. (EI) has changed the name of its Education Division to EI Shot Peening Training, thereby reinforcing the company’s commitment to providing comprehensive shot peening and rotary flap peening training.

The name change was prompted by the need for a new website, independent of EI’s website. “Enrollment in EI’s training programs has grown 132% in the past three years and it was time to launch a more accessible website,” said Dave Barkley, Director of Training. “We also wanted a clear differentiation between our shot peening training programs and EI’s support of their MagnaValve product line,” he added.

The new logo maintains a strong link to EI in name and appearance because Electronics Inc. is the pioneer of shot peening training, holding the first shot peening workshop in 1991. The initial workshops were held in the United States and the events are now hosted in the U.S., South America, Europe and Asia. The dates and locations of the seminars/workshops aren’t always convenient for groups that need immediate assistance, so EI’s on-site training is available worldwide and has been provided in Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, England, France, Germany, United Arab Emirates, and throughout the United States. Training is conducted in English and native languages, including French, German, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

The new website’s address is Features of the new website include:

  • Upcoming seminars and workshops with fees, hotel accommodations, and agenda/training topics
  • On-site shot peening and rotary flap peening training information
  • A comparison of the benefits of seminars and workshops to the benefits of on-site training
  • An online registration form
  • A complete list of all training topics, broken down into Core Classes/FAA-Accepted Courses, Specialty Seminar Classes and Customized On-Site Training Topics
  • A list of instructors and their biographies
  • Information on the Achievement Exam Program

“The growth in training is exciting to us for three reasons. Obviously, we’re pleased that our endeavor is successful, but also because the demand for training signifies the strength and growth of the entire shot peening industry,” said Tom Brickley, Vice President of Electronics Inc. “And it means that more companies are paying attention to the quality and control of their shot peening processes.”

EI Shot Peening Training is based in Electronics Inc.’s corporate headquarters in Mishawaka, Indiana. EI manufactures the MagnaValve media valve, controllers, Almen gages and strips. EI also publishes The Shot Peener magazine and maintains the world’s largest online resource for shot peening and blast cleaning at
