Custom Shot Peening Machines

Custom built shot peening and abrasive blasting machines with proven components to process any shape and sized part.


Consistent Accuracy

CNC motion control systems allow for consistent, precise peening. 


Custom Part Enclosures

Custom part enclosures allows for special part size and part handling.


Easy Programming

CIMCAP also allows for easy programming by using mouse click commands that write CNC G code.

Built to Meet Your Unique Needs

Innovative Peening Systems offers custom machinery when our standard machines do not fit the customer application. We use standard proven components to manufacture custom sized shot peening and blasting machines per your requirements.

Consistent Accuracy and Part Recipe Programming

Our CNC motion system allows the customer to process any shape and size part. This system offers consistent accuracy and part recipe programming. Custom part enclosures allow for special part sizes and part handling. Axis combination and controller types are customer choices, multiple motion axis configurations will meet the custom demands. The motion control system of the machine will consist of a Fanuc CNC controller. Motion programs are created by jogging the axes with the pendant and pressing the insert button on the CNC keyboard.

CIMCAP Monitoring

CIMCAP monitoring system is designed for both the operator and the process engineer. Each CIMCAP system is fully configured for its specific application. Extension context sensitive help and intuitive Windows based controls make using the CIMCAP system operator friendly. CIMCAP also allows for easy programming by using mouse click commands that write CNC G code.

For example, the programmer can change the air pressure by clicking on the CIMCAP air pressure button then entering the new pressure. CIMCAP will write and enter the proper code into the part program. These quick programming buttons include, but are not limited to, dwell, axis speed, part rotation speed, air pressure, shot flow and other key parameters.

Robotic Arm Shot Peening

Articulating arm robotics can be added to the interior or exterior of all IPS machines. Normally this type of robotic motion is specific to an application, such as plastic media blasting, or a specific motion that a CNC-gantry robot cannot provide. Articulating arm robots are historically cheaper than CNC-gantry robots, but can be more expensive to repair should wear occur inside the enclosure. Articulating arm robots also require larger enclosure sizes to accommodate the robot motion. The main benefit of an articulating arm robot motion is speed and reach. Systems can also be integrated with other loading robots and multi systems tasking.

Robotic articulating arm machines offer users a fast nozzle motion for larger parts that need quick cycle timers. Customers may choose the robot of choice. Another benefit to some customers is the familiarity of robot programming. Machine enclosures are custom built to allow the robotic arm to fully move to peen or blast the users part.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Why should I shot peen parts?

    Shot peening enhances parts by replacing tensile stress. Tensile stress can cause parts to fail, with compressive residual stress, which are strong and part of a design and reside in a part. Well know examples of residual stress designs are the Colosseum in Rome and the Hoover Dam.

    Will extra peening make a part even stronger?

    No, you can actually damage the fatigue life of a part by overpeening and the best way to control the peening to specification is through CNC control.


    How can a single robotic nozzle be better than a batch or multi- nozzle machine?

    A single nozzle robotic machine is better and faster than batch and multiple nozzle machines since they will cover the entire designated area to precisely 100% coverage. Batch and multi-nozzle machines can strike the same place to 300% or 400% coverage in order to get all areas to 100%, ultimately weakening the part AND increasing production time.
