WHY WE CANNOT CONTROL BLASTING & PEENING PROCESS

I happen to visit a gear manufacturer recently.When I was taken around the Shot Blasting Machine I observed the following: 1.Lot of usable abrasive was coming out of the dust collector hopper. 2.No incoming abrasive inspection 3.Variable cycle time 4.Improper duct routing. 5.Regular fire in the dust collector Looking into all this raises a very per

SHOT PEENING

Many a times I am faced with a very common question,"We are getting the arc height but we are not getting the desired compressive residual stress".The following are the underlying causes: 1.Wrong selection of equipment. 2.Wrong placement of Almen Holder 3.Saturation curve not plotted. 4.Improper determination of intensity value 5.Wrong shot hardnes
BLAST CLEANING FUNDAMENTALS

BLAST CLEANING FUNDAMENTALS

History of Blast Cleaning dates back to 1870 when Mr.B.C.Tilghmaan of Philadelphia obtained the first patent for sand blasting. In this process a jet of sand propelled at high velocity by a steam or air blast, is employed as a tool for cutting stone and other materials, and at lower velocity of jet it is employed for grinding and ornamenting the su

2nd Edition-SHOT PEENING

It is not often that a work of technical literature becomes a bestseller, especially since the market is usually very limited. But the 1st edition of SHOT PEENING has been an exception and it is totally sold out. Therefore we have decided to publish a 2nd edition. The new edition has been completely revised and updated with 3 additional chapters an

Use of ceramic Shots in Shot Peening

I was in Singapore as a Guest Speaker at MFN International workshop.There I had the opportunity to have discussion with Mr.Francois Xavier Abadie of M/S Saint Gobain France.He has been working on the benifits of ceramic shots in shot peening. Few of the benifits of using ceramic shots are underlined below: 1.High performance ceramic material allows

Improvement in Surface Fatigue Life of Hardened Gears by High-Intensity Shot Peening

Authors: Dennis P. Townsend ; NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION CLEVELAND OH LEWIS RESEARCH CEN TER Abstract: Two groups of carburized, hardened, and ground spur gears that were manufactured from the same heat of vacuum-induction-melted-vacuum-arc-remelted (VIM-VAR) AISI 9-310 steel were endurance tested for surface fatigue. Both groups

WHEEL BLASTING/PEENING-WHEN TO CHANGE WHEEL PARTS

WHEEL BLASTING/PEENING-WHEN TO CHANGE WHEEL PARTS

I am yet to see an organisation where the operators/maintenace fitter change the wheel parts well in time.The parts are changed when they are broken.Well not that the wear implications are not evident but either it is not understood or it is sheer ignorance. Implications of a worn out parts are very severe as under: The Blasting time increases so o
