The shot peening process is the most economical and effective process for producing surface residual compressive stresses to increase the product life of the product life of metal. Surface compression stress strengthens metal, ensuring that the part will resist fatigue failures, corrosion fatigue and cracking, and galling from cavitation. Our shot peening process
extends the life of metal parts and prevents crack formations.
Halo Metal Prep’s shot peening service is a cold working process used to finish metallic parts and improve the stress corrosion resistance of the metal. Shot peening creates beneficial residual surface stresses that prevent and/or delay crack initiation and propagation. Halo Metal Prep is proud to supply high-quality shot peening services and customer service.
Metal finishing is the process of applying a process of enhancing the surface of a metallic part, typically referred to as the substrate. Quality metal finishing can also include cleaning, polishing, deburring or overall improving a metal surface. Common purposes of industrial metal finishing include:
- Clean, polish, deburr, and remove surface defects
- Limit the effects of corrosion and stress fatigue
- Serve as a primer coat for paint adhesion
- Reduce the effects of friction
- Enhance chemical resistance
- Improve the overall appearance of a metal part
Halo Metal Prep’s extensive knowledge and expertise allows us to provide high-quality mechanical metal finishing services in Cleveland, Ohio. With our advanced metal finishing technologies, we use steel shot, aluminum oxide, Ceramic and glass beads to solve any metal finishing task. We also perform precision deburring and polishing. Industries such as forging, Casting, aircraft, military, commercial, industrial, and fabricating rely on Halo Prep Metal for the highest quality metal parts.
Shot blasting is a different process compared to shot peening. Shot blasting near me involves the process of propelling steel beads or other blasting media to clean a metal’s surface. The high-velocity blasting knocks the surface free of debris and other materials. The shot blasting process uses either a spinning wheel to centrifugally accelerate the blast media, or High-Pressure air to blast it against a metal surface.
Metal blasting services like shot blasting are appropriate prep for coating or bonding applications – additional benefits include but are not limited to: deburring, de-flashing and de-coating. Shot blasting is a different process than Shot Peening, requiring less parameters and testing. The process involves the propelling of steel shot or other spherical media.
Our commercial metal improvement services include the finishing of prototypes and production parts including:
- Sandblasting (Environmentally approved alternative abrasives)
- Surface Preparation
Halo Metal Prep also provides mechanical metal finishing services for OEM and aftermarket part preparation for painting, coating, plating, anodizing, heat treating, and more.
To prevent metal fatigue and cracking, Halo Metal Prep offers state-of-the-art mechanical metal finishing services and unmatched turnaround times. Our ISO Compliant Quality Management System assures quality and performance while processing your metal components.
Commercial metal polishing is a process that utilizes abrasive materials to smooth metal surfaces. When polished metal surfaces are freed of defects and debris, a shiny and reflective appearance is revealed. Metal polishing services can also be complimented by metal buffing near me, a less harsh method of polishing that results in a brighter finish.
Metal polishing near me is a necessary method in many manufacturing processes. Architectural metal, cookware, Medical hardware & instruments, metal automotive parts, Aircraft Landing Gear and faucets are just a few examples of products that receive polishing services before they reach the market. Halo Metal Prep has the expertise to provide exceptional metal polishing services for metal components.
