Avoid that sinking feeling by shot peening your important shipyard components

From removing surface corrosion to preparing for new paint, shot peening can do it all

Shot peening and other surface engineering solutions are not new to the shipbuilding industry; whether it be descaling and removing of welding flux, the removal of surface corrosion on ships’ plates, structures that need cleaning, distortion at the steel plates, brackets or stiffeners, or painting service preparation, (for example, ships hulls), shot peening is a popular and cost-effective solution for many shipyards.

Prolong the lifespan of important components and save on long-term costs

Shot peening is particularly applicable in the shipbuilding industry as, in an exceptionally competitive market, the process prolongs the usual lifespan of components, equipment and materials in an industry where longevity is a necessity, as well as an expectation. There are few sectors that are more open to the elements, erosion and corrosion, or just repairs and rebuilds thanks to wear and tear that would, without shot peening, need significant investment.

Shot peening is often conducted on camshafts, gears, propellers, connecting rods, crankshafts and counterweights

Shot peening can offer much to many aspects of shipbuilding, with typical applications benefiting camshafts, gears, propellers, connecting rods, crankshafts and counterweights. Offering an extension to the fatigue life or distortion of welded parts, in itself, ensures a decrease in repair and maintenance costs and an improved health and safety record.
