New Wheelabrator® Automated Airblast Peening System: Peening Landing Gears for Aerospace Industry

Share Article

The new Wheelabrator® Automated Airblast, Wheelblast and Hybrid peening systems offer comprehensive solutions for aerospace applications.

The new Wheelabrator® Automated Airblast, Wheelblast and Hybrid peening systems offer comprehensive solutions for aerospace applications. When comparing like solutions, consider the sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, operator interface and touch screen controls that provide access to real-time process data, trending and analytical capabilities of Wheelabrator equipment. Whether blast wheels or numerically-controlled nozzles, both propulsion techniques allow for optimum peening in select areas.

Landing gear peening can be accomplished with blast wheels for large external part areas and lance style nozzle (airblast) to target internal areas, or a custom hybrid constructed in a common enclosure. Tailoring a system to a customer's specific needs can represent a considerable cost-savings in (1) equipment, and (2) reduction in work handling. From wing spars and engine components to landing gears, a Wheelabrator Automated Peening system can be configured to suit most aerospace peening requirements.

High-carbon alloy landing gears require processing in compliance with specifications comprising critical tolerances. These parameters are met with an optimum mix of machine sub-components, peening media, electrical and pneumatic control circuits. Overhauling landing gear requires re-building the surface and peening to protect from failure due to fatigue stress. The Automated Airblast Peening System can adapt to different media types, classify for the right media size, shape, flow rate, and peening pressure to ensure consistent peening results.
