Event #1 – Day 1 – March 13, 2018 (preliminary agenda)

Start Description
8:00 Check-in and Breakfast Pre-registered attendees should arrive during this time to sign in, collect reference materials and have breakfast before lectures begin. (60 min)
9:00 Seminar Opening and Introduction to Shot Peening by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. This entry level class discusses the history and fundamentals of the peening process that we know today as terms used in the industry are introduced and explained. This session also defines when the peening process should be performed. (50 min)
9:50 Peening Media Basics 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. (30 min)
Break (20 min)
10:40 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-13165 was replaced with AMS 2431. (45 min)
11:25 Intensity Basics 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. (60 min)
LUNCH (45 min)
1:10 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. (30 min)
1:40 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. (60 min)
Break (20 min)
3:00 Ceramic Bead Media by Rosber. Learn about shot peening applications for ceramic media. Topics will cover rudiment aspects of ceramic beads and their chemical properties, and various surface applications, all with emphasis on shot peening. (20 min)
3:20 Wheel Blast Peening Machines by Wheelabrator. 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. (50 min)
Break/Dismissal (20 min)
4:30 Level 1 – Preview and Exam (60 min)
5:30 Evening Reception sponsored by Engineered Abrasives. Join fellow students and instructors in a relaxed setting for dinner and beverages. (Food served at 6pm)

Event #1 – Day 2 – March 14, 2018 (preliminary agenda)

Start Description
8:00 Breakfast before lectures begin. (60 min)
9:00 Rotary-Flapper Peening Lecture by EI SPT as part of FAA course material. Flapper Peening is becoming more accepted as a reliable peening process for spot-repair.  It is an inexpensive way to apply the peening process in small areas without having to use large blast cabinets.  This session discusses the origins of (rotary) flap peening and outlines how it uses a slightly different set of rules from conventional peening.  Participation in a Practical (hands-on) is mandatory for those seeking to be tested for FAA course credit. (60 min)
Break (20 min)
10:20 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. (50 min)
11:10 Advanced Intensity 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. (50 min)
LUNCH (45 min)
12:45 Advanced Saturation Curve Practice 1-6 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. (40 min)
1:25 Advanced Peening Coverage 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 and how avoid peening parts for too long. We examine coverage problems and offer solutions for hard to peen locations. (50 min)
Break (20 min)
2:35 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. (50 min)

 

Break/Dismissal (20 min)
