The solution against metal fatigue
Shot peening is Ideal for landing gear, turbine blades, discs, and shafts. Increase resistance to crack formation and breakage, and extends components lifespan.
Increasing landing gear crack resistance
To increase Landing Gear crack resistance Straaltechniek provides innovative, and 100% customize shot peening long-life solutions.
As each Straaltechniek solution is specifically designed to meet customer needs, there is not an exhausted list of features. Nevertheless, we can take a look at previous successful landing gear delivered solutions and find features such as:
- SIMULTANEOUS internal and external shot peening process.
Six ROBOT CONTROLLED AXLES interconnected to the dolly for full automation and ideal for complex structures.
Highly efficient ROTARY NOZZLES capable of reaching holes of less than 8 mm of diameter.
AUTOMATED MEDIA RECOVERY and reclassification by diameter and shape.
Use of STEEL SHOT AND CERAMIC BEADS in a single process.
And, as always, the best quality at the best cost with MINIMUM DOWNTIME

- Fully programmable system: the programming can be done using a remote controller.
- Real-time monitoring: the software package enables real-time monitoring, controlling, and recording of old critical feeding parameters.
- Industrial robot: a precise six axes robot that can be mounted to the ceiling or on one of the sides of the cabinet, executes the nozzle manipulation.
- Replaceable nozzles: the nozzles can be changed allowing the process of different parts sizes and shapes; and meeting specific needs.
- Indexing turntable: a three-axis rotating platform that works integrally with the robot generating a total of nine programmable axes to guarantee high accuracy of the shot peening process.
- Mechanical media reclaim system: ensures the highest quality level for the peening media.
- Intelligent pneumatic valves system: regulates the closed-loop pressure and shot flow controllers to ensure an even and continuous shot flow.
- Record: all critical parameters of the shot peening process are recorded for repeatability and traceability.
The excellence begins on the inside
When the excellence begins on the inside, each part counts, and to achieve it you must rely on quality technology. The excellence behind Straaltechniek's shot peening and blasting rooms is based on the ability to design 100% adapted turnkey installation and the used of the best technology and innovative parts across the installations.
Inside of a Straaltechniek wheel blasting machine you can find one perfect example of excellence: The GN Wheel (R)
With curved blades and an ingenious blade support, this wheel is a distinctive piece on the room that enhanced the overall performance.
GN Wheel Key Benefits
- Improves the shotflow
- Extends the blades life
- Reduce energy consumption
- Reduce maintenance costs
- Increased blasting efficiency
