Congratulations to Michael Schmidt—our recipient of the 2021 Shot Peener of the Year award. Since 1992, The Shot Peener magazine has recognized individuals for their contributions to the shot peening industry. “Michael Schmidt received the award because of his contributions to two SAE committees: The Surface Enhancement Committee (SEC) and the Aerospace Surface Enhancement Committee (ASEC),” said Jack Champaigne, Editor of The Shot Peener magazine and Chairman of the SEC and ASEC committees. “His contribution has been valuable because of his connection with GE and their rigid specifications. He brings a perspective from the aero-engine community not available elsewhere. He was the driving force in the updates to the SAE J2277 spec on coverage. He has a knack for reading ballot proposals in detail and finding both typographic and technical errors,” added Mr. Champaigne.
