In the past, a number of models and measuring systems have been developed at in Institute for Metal Forming to change the shape of large structural components, in particular those in use in the aerospace industry, with which the degree of coverage of the shot and the shot distribution on the surface of the peened component during the forming process could be determined. The latest development a system for on-line measurements of the velocity of shot particles with diameters between 0.3 mm and 10 mm, enables a complete documentation of the peening process during both shot peen forming and hardening. Such a control of the mist important peening parameters allows shot peening to very narrow tolerances and is of decisive importance for quality assurance.
