Mexico Shot Peening Seminar – Day 1

Tuesday – September 28, 2021
7:00am Breakfast in hotel restaurant (60 min)
sponsored by Equipos de Abrasion.
8:00am Check-in Registered attendees should arrive during this time to sign in and collect reference materials. (30min)
8:30am Seminar Opening and Introduction to Shot Peening by EI SPT as part of beginner 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)
9:10am Peening Media by EI SPT as part of beginner 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)
9:50am Break (20min)
10:10am Intensity Basics & Calculation by EI SPT as part of beginner 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)
11:10am Saturation Curve Practice 1-3 by EI SPT as part of beginner 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)
11:30am LUNCH in hotel restaurant (60min)
sponsored by Electronics Incorporated
12:30pm Peening Coverage and Masking by EI SPT as part of beginner 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)
1:30pm Break (15min)
1:45pm Wheel Blast Peening Machines by Wheelabrator Group. Wheel machines are used for peening large objects or areas quickly and efficiently. This class gives an overview of the design, operation and adjustment of a wheel blast peening machine. Machine inspection and preventative maintenance will also be highlighted in this presentation. (45 min)
2:30pm Break (15min)
2:45pm Air Blast Peening Machines by Equipos and Progressive Surface. Air Machines are used for precision peening of a localized area. This class gives an overview of the setup and operation of an air blast peening machine. Machine inspection and preventative maintenance will also be highlighted in this presentation. (45 min)
3:30pm Break / Dismissal / Study (30min)
4:00pm Exam Session
Level 1 “Beginner” Certification
(60min)
5:00pm End of Day

Mexico Shot Peening Seminar – Day 2

Wednesday – September 29, 2021
7:00am Breakfast in hotel restaurant (60 min)
sponsored by Electronics Incorporated
8:00am Q&A Review (Optional) Q&A with instructor for those that had a hard time with first day’s material. (30 min)
8:30am Media Inspection and Maintenance by EI SPT as part of advanced 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)
9:30am AMS Media Properties by Ervin Industries. This presentation goes through the AMS 2431 spec “slash-by-slash”. Each media type will be discussed along with its properties and procedures of size & shape control, inspection and specifications. This presentation also includes a brief history of how MIL-S-13165 was replaced with AMS 2431. (40 min)
10:10am Break (20min)
10:30am Advanced Intensity / Parameter Adjustments by EI SPT as part of advanced FAA course material. This session looks at how various peening parameters can affect the intensity results in your process. (60min)
11:30am LUNCH in hotel restaurant (60min)
sponsored by Equipos de Abrasion
12:30pm Saturation Curve Practice 4-8 by EI SPT as part of advanced 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)
1:10pm Advanced Coverage Concepts by EI SPT as part of advanced 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. (60min)
2:10pm Break (30min)
2:30pm Procedure and Processes by EI SPT as part of advanced 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. (30min)
3:00pm Break / Dismissal / Study (30min)
3:30pm Exam Session
Level 2 “Advanced” Certification
(60min)
Level 3 “Professional” Certification
(90min)
5:00pm End of Day
