Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies (CWST) is a 100% daughter of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation and established since 1946 as Metal Improvement Company to provide Shot Peening services for many industrial applications. We serve our customers worldwide in more than 75 business units with automated machines as well as with mobile on-site field teams.
The controlled shot peeing is applied to prevent fatigue, galling and stress corrosion cracking. The process induces beneficial residual compressive stresses and removes tensile stress. Furthermore cold work hardening increases the surface hardness. Performance and life of critical components will be extended considerably.
Additionally we provide further surface treatments as:
Chemical assisted surface enhancement (C.A.S.E. isotropic finishing) to reduce friction and to prevent pitting, increasing the tooth flank load capacity, reducing noise problems
Engineered coatings (dry film lubricants), protection against corrosion, reduced sliding friction
Shot peen forming
