This large robotic shot peen system with two separate chambers (ARSP&ARGB) is designed to peen the ID and OD surfaces of a range of landing gear components. The parts are loaded and manipulated using an integral machine mounted hoist connecting both chambers and can be rotated or indexed on the precise servo turntables.
Two Chamber Design
As landing gear components come in different sizes, materials and therefore different requirements for peening results that exceed the capabilities of a single machine a double robotic chamber was adopted as a complete solution.
N strip chamber (ARGB)
One chamber is equipped with a peening system suitable for achieving results in the range of Almen N-Strip using glass peening media. Commonly for lightweight media is the pneumatic media collecting and transport system used also benefiting in low maintenance while less mechanical components are being used as in mechanical systems.
For media mass control all new MAGNAVALVES for non-ferrous media is installed thus solving long time problem of regulating Glass media flow. Two Magnavalves are working in combination with double pressure vessel and feeding two robotic manipulated nozzles, one standard and one rotating lance for ID.
A strip chamber (ARSP)
The second chamber is optimized for achieving intensities of Almen A-Strip range using two different sizes of highly effective SCCW media. A-Strip chamber is equipped with standard components for process control such as Magnavalves, proportional air pressure controller and SCADA along with industrial robotic manipulator.
