Our Advanced Almen gages, certified Almen strips, and Almen strip holders are the industry-standard tools for measuring intensity. Shot peening intensity is the measure of the energy of the shot stream—the energy of the shot stream is directly related to the compressive stress that is imparted into a part. It’s one of the essential means of ensuring process repeatability.
Almen Gages should be calibrated annually to assure proper performance. EI calibration services ensure compiance to standard or special Almen gage requirements. Or calibrate your Almen gages in-house with our calibration block kits.
