ABSTRACT Shot peening using blast wheels offers a high level of flexibility and process reliability especially for larger series and larger workpieces. This paper describes shot peening solutions for bevel gears and crown wheels for the automotive industry at BMW, Dingolfing. The significance of shot peening trials to determine the optimum solution is outlined and solutions found - satellite shot peening systems - are presented. The influence of a proper working dust removal plant and separation system on shot peening results are shown, importance and control of process reliability are outlined.
