MIAMI - April 13, 2015 - PRLog -- On a continuous pursuit to enhance our capabilities and to offer our customers technical and engineering solutions to maximize quality, turn around time and cost, Jetair Support is pleased to offer automated shot peening capabilities on the Fan Disks of the CFM56-3, -5, and -7 family of engines manufactured by the partnership of Snecma and General Electric.

Peening a surface changes in the mechanical properties of the surface. Its main application is to avoid the spreading of micro-cracks on a surface. Such cracks do not propagate in a material that is under a compressive stress; shot peening can create such a stress in the surface. Shot peening relieves tensile stresses built up in the grinding process and replaces them with beneficial compressive stresses. Shot peening can increase fatigue life up to 1000%

Jetair Support (http://www.jetairsupport.com) out of its Miami facility has engineered an automated shot peening process which enhances the quality of the application while cutting down the time necessary to complete the process.

Videos of the engineered process can be seen at:
