Shot Peening

Virtual Scientific Industries is the first company fully dedicated to exclusively offer complete Shot Peening services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and GCC. Shot Peening is a cold working process that imparts compressive stresses and relieves Residual tensile stresses to improve the fatigue life of metallic components, imparts anti-galling properties, creates a specific surface profile and improves resistance to stress corrosion cracking.

Shot Peening is the cold working process accomplished by pelting the surface of metal part with the spherical media, thrown relatively at high velocity. This imparts the compressive residual stresses and relives the tensile residual stresses to improve fatigue life of the component.
