Shot Peen Metal Finishing

Industrial Metal Finishing, Inc. is a premier provider of shot peening services. Shot peening is a controlled and reproducible process that impacts metal surfaces with spherical particles, which realigns the mechanical structure at the surface and produces a compressive residual stress layer that inhibits the formation of fatigue cracks on the materials surface and substantially increases the service life of the product. 

IMF’s engineering team will work closely with you to develop a process that increases the strength, performance, and lifecycle of critical components. IMF will assist you with troubleshooting performance issues, interpreting industry specifications, and developing proprietary peening specifications. Our highly skilled quality technicians conduct both visual inspections and surface imaging studies to quantify the effects of the shot peening process and verify process integrity. 

Installation qualifications (IQ) and operational qualifications (OQ) are completed for all processing and support equipment within IMF’s validated facility. 

As a customer-focused organization, we build strong relationships with each of our clients and provide services of exceptional quality and value. We are a trusted vendor for many large national companies and are capable of adhering to relevant automotive, aerospace, mil-spec, and medical industry standards.
