Shot Peening Workshop to Be Held in Aerospace Corridor

Mishawaka, Indiana - (June 8, 2008) - Electronics Inc. ( is conducting a Shot Peening and Blast Cleaning Workshop and Trade Show in Cincinnati, Ohio on October 28, 29, and 30 at the Hyatt Regency. Cincinnati is located in an Ohio aerospace powerhouse corridor with more than 300 industry-related businesses. Anyone who works in the shot peening industry will benefit from this comprehensive workshop and the program is ideal for aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities. The workshop courses are recognized by the FAA. Mechanics qualified under FAA rules to perform inspections may receive credit for obtaining workshop Certificates of Achievement. Additionally, the flapper peening classes and exam are of special benefit to shot peening operators in the aerospace industry.

The workshop will cover all aspects of the shot peening and blast cleaning processes including the proper shot peening procedures as required by applicable specifications; the products (air and wheel machines, nozzles, media, and job shop services); how to control the process through media, intensity, coverage and equipment; how to plot a saturation curve to determine intensity; how to establish proper machine parameters to ensure correct stress profiles and fatigue life; proper paperwork procedures and record keeping; how to pass an audit; how to spot a machine malfunction; and machine maintenance.

The workshop will feature a free tour of Hartzell Propeller for workshop attendees; however, space is limited so register early. The cost of the workshop is $850 USD per person and includes workbook, break refreshments and lunch. Group discounts are available and the hotel is providing discounted room rates for attendees.

All workshop attendees will receive Certificates of Attendance. Electronics Inc. will also offer Level I, II and III Shot Peening and Flapper Peening Exams for qualified students on October 31 for a fee of $100.00 each. Upon passing the exams, participants will earn Certificates of Achievement.

About Shot Peening
Shot peening is a cold-working process in which the material surface is peened to induce compressive stresses and thereby improve fatigue life. Shot peening is used in aerospace, automotive, mining, medical and other industries that need to improve the fatigue properties of metal components.
