Shot Peening & Specialist Coatings

Sandwell UK

Sandwell UK Ltd is a highly professional company focused on specialist surface engineering solutions for top level clients. Our specialist skillset and excellent product knowledge in Shot Peening technologies, Surface Engineering and Engineering Technology, Specialist Coating Solutions & Innovation are the key to the company’s success. We are always pushing surface finishing boundaries with new innovative techniques, whilst always meeting our customers needs and expectations. Our surface engineering services include Shot peening, Controlled Shot peening, Bead Blasting, Satinising, Chemi Blacking, Superfinishing and Advanced Superfinishing.

Shot peening is the process of impacting materials with spherical media to impart energy to the surface of a component. The amount of stress imparted to the material is proportional to the amount of energy applied.

Bead blasting is the process of either glass bead blasting or ceramic bead blasting at a surface to improve its general surface finish or to remove surface contaminates.

Our satinising process employs a range of in-house media processes to produce the surface finish you require. Typically the process of gently blasting the surface with a glass bead media will enhance the finish of machined parts and produce a bright, non-glare and finely textured subtle surface finish.

The Chemi Blacking process is most effective on most low and high alloy steels with the exception of high chrome austenitic and martensitic stainless steels. It produces a lustre finish dependent on base material condition that doesn’t significantly affect frictional properties.

Our superfinishing process is designed to refine and polish surfaces to enhance component performance. This is an engineered finish with the benefit of producing a low friction surface that reduces rolling resistance.
