2020 Ireland Peening Seminar

Day 1 – January 22, 2020 – Wednesday

Roosevelt Meeting Room
Start Description
8:30am Check-in / Breakfast Registered attendees should arrive during this time to sign in and collect reference materials. (30min)
9:00am Seminar Opening and Introduction to Shot Peening by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. The format of the seminar is quickly explained before beginning the morning’s FAA course material. This entry level class discusses the history and fundamentals of the peening process. Terms used in the industry are introduced and explained. (40min)
9:40am Peening Media by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. The media is the real tool of the peening process. This session gives an overview of the four types of media commonly used in peening and their attributes. This class also briefly discusses what to look for when selecting the right media for your application. (40min)
Break (20min)
10:40am Intensity Basics & Calculation by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This class will introduce the concept of peening intensity and how it is measured using Almen strips, holders and gages. The saturation curve and the 10% rule are explained and guidelines for new set-ups and verification trials for peening intensity are discussed. (60min)
11:40am Saturation Curve Practice 1-3 by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This session explores simplified saturation curves as workshop attendees are asked to plot arc height data in order to determine intensity. (20min)
12:00noon – LUNCH Break
1:00pm Peening Coverage and Masking by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This session outlines Coverage requirements for the peening process. We discuss why Coverage is important and how to inspect for proper Coverage. A brief outline of part masking options will also be discussed. (60min)
2:00pm Rotary-Flap Peening Introduction by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This presentation is and introduction to Rotary-Flap Peening (REP) which has become a reliable method to perform the peening process over small areas where damage repair or corrosion removal has left tensile stress on the part surface. The process is clean, extremely portable, and allows parts to be peened while assembled.

Those seeking RFP certification must attend this Introduction presentation, the Tech Training (below) the required written and practical testing. (30 min)

Study Break/Dismissal (30min)
3:00pm Exam Session – Level 1 Certification (45min)
Break/Dismissal (15min)
4:00pm Rotary-Flap Peening Tech Training by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This lecture consists of the technical aspects of the RFP process and is intended only for those seeking RFP certification in the process. Those seeking RFP certification must attend the Introduction presentation and this Technical lecture before moving on to the required written and practical testing. (60min)
5:00pm  Seats

RFP Practical Training/Testing by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. In accordance to FAA and SAE AMS-2590 requirements, practical and written exams will be given to those seeking certification in the Rotary-Flap Peening process. This course has limited availability. (90min)NOTE: Additional seats will be made available on April 30th when no seats are remaining during the 2-day seminar.

Day 2 – January 23, 2020 – Thursday

Roosevelt Meeting Room
Start Description
8:30am Level 1 Material/Exam Breakdown (Optional)
9:00am Media Inspection and Maintenance by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. Using the correct media and maintaining its quality is a must for a consistent process. This session discusses different media specifications and their requirements. Examples of both shape and size inspection are reviewed and on-machine devices that help meet specifications and maintain media quality are also examined. (60min)
10:00am Advanced Intensity – Parameter Adjustment by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This session looks at how other peening parameters can affect the intensity results in your process. Changes in the media and machine condition can cause undesired results. (60min)
Break (20min)
11:20am Advanced Saturation Curve Practice 4-8 by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This hands-on practical asks students to produce slightly more challenging saturation curves and determine an intensity value. This session also invokes the thought that the saturation curve can be more than just a means to determine an intensity value. (40min)
12:00noon – LUNCH Break
1:00pm Advanced Coverage and Lean Peening by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. For the process engineer, this session discusses how to determine part processing time to insure proper coverage while avoiding peening parts for too long. Solutions for hard to peen locations are also discussed. (50min)
1:50pm Procedure and Processes  by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. The session begins with an introduction to residual stress curves and then explains how special peening processes such as stress, heat and dual peening can improve the results of the peening process. Other advanced peening topics will also be discussed. (40min)
2:30pm TBA
Study Break/Dismissal (30min)
TBD  Exam Session – Level 2 Certification  (60min L2 / 90min L3)
