Shot peening induces residual compressive stresses in the surface and near-surface layers of metallic articles, controlling or limiting the reduction in fatigue properties that occurs from nickel or chromium plating of the article, or the fatigue properties of unplated articles. Year after year, the deceptively simple test coupon fulfilled its function as an indicator of shot peening intensity.

The gauge will not lose information when you change the battery so there is no need to recalibrate the gauge after battery replacement. In general, shot peening will increase the fatigue life of a product that is subject to bending or torsional stress.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. EI recognized this and has developed an Almen strip with features to help peening facilities meet the demands for increased process and quality control. The Almen Gauge Jr. Prior to shot peening, the following operations shall be done first: Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Our end stops assure placement within the intended measuring point on the strip.



The strip is mounted for accurate measurement so no spring or finger dae force will corrupt the reading accuracy. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. It can be used to form parts or correct their shapes. It is a process for cold working surfaces by bombarding the product with shot j42 a solid and spherical nature propelled at a relatively high velocity.

Further, it does not qualify to AMS because it does not have the end stops. It has all the features needed to satisfy the most stringent specifications for the 2 type Almen gauge. Apply for Credit Account Click here for an Application. The battery is easy-to-change and readily available. See Appendix X1 for additional information.

Advanced Swe gauge continues to be the finest gauge on the market. It is not suitable for brittle materials. Light Duty Portable Blast Equipment. Shot peening was growing increasingly sophisticated; however, mostly due to its contribution to the aerospace industry. Hand peening and rotary flap peening are excluded sad. It will improve resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Since all of the holding force is concentrated at the support balls, absolutely no strip distortion can occur U. Peened surfaces shall be uniform in appearance and completely dented so that the original surface is obliterated entirely.


ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

After shot peening, the following methods shall be done: The small size and light weight of the Almen Gauge Jr. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Cast steel, cut wire, and ceramic shot shall all be spherical in shape and shall all be free saw sharp edges, corners, and broken pieces. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

This specification covers the requirements for automated, controlled shot peening of metallic articles prior to electrolytic or autocatalytic deposition of nickel or chromium, or as a final finish, using shot made of cast steel, conditioned cut wire, or ceramic media.

The process is applicable to those materials on which test work aae shown it to be beneficial within given intensity ranges.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
