The automotive industries are increasing their use of shot peening. This is attributed to the need to improve corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) by weight reduction of component parts. Shot peening is used as an aid in assuring satisfactory fatigue life and reliability of these components. High production requirements combined with stringent shot peening specifications have required the use of automated shot peening machines utilizing advanced technology such as computer-diagnostics, high energy airless shot blast wheels and stress peening techniques.
