Removing distortion from thin ceramics with shot peening

By Eileen De Guire / April 2, 2012

Shot is fired from a blasting gun at a ceramic leaf spring to correct its shape or cause specific warping as desired. Credit: Felicitas Gemetz; Fraunhofer IWM. Ceramic materials are the go-to materials for applications in corrosive, high-temperature environments. However, shaping ceramics, especially thin parts such as leaf springs or lightweight mirrors is not simple…
