Increase Your Fatigue Strength with Saturn Machine Shot Peening


Saturn Machine Works has been providing quality shot peening services for many years. We service the oil industry, mining, automotive and heavy equipment manufacturers.


Having a range of small cabinets for S110 and S230 shot, we can handle small parts, and tubulars to 30 feet long. Our large peening room can handle parts to 10,000lbs. A variety of media types are available from hardened cast steel to stainless steel shot.


Our in-house qualification and verification process is achieved using certified Almen Test strips and Almen Gage, to ensure correct ARC values meet the requirements of SAE J442, along with AMS2430.


To ensure proper coverage, a UV dye (Fluoro-Finder III Tracer) is used along with a certified UV light source, to yield accurate coverage and repeatable results.
Shot is re-captured, sieved and cleaned to ensure the media is free of contaminants or fractured media, and that there is no cross contamination between media sizes.


Glass beading is available to decontaminate shot peened parts if necessary.
