Upcoming Toronto Shot Peening Workshop

Upcoming Toronto Shot Peening Workshop Ideal for Aviation MRO Mechanics

Electronics Inc. Education Division (www.electronics-inc.com) is conducting a Shot Peening and Blast Cleaning Workshop in Toronto, Canada on April 28 and 29 at the Hyatt Regency Toronto. Toronto is located in an aerospace powerhouse corridor with more than 200 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 also feature Advanced Shot Peening courses for shot peening professionals that are ready for more advanced topics. 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 (including Nadcap audits); how to spot a machine malfunction and machine maintenance.

The workshop is ideal for product design managers,omachine operators, foremen, supervisors, service managers, metallurgists, engineers, maintenance and quality control engineers and those who have received shot peening and blast cleaning processes as part of new job responsibilities.

The cost of the workshop is $600 USD per person and includes workbook, breakfast, break refreshments, lunch and Certificate of Attendance. Group discounts are available and the hotel is providing discounted room rates for attendees.

Electronics Inc. will also offer Level I, II and III Shot Peening and Flapper Peening Exams for qualified students on April 29th for a fee of $100.00 each.

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.
