USF Wheelabrator Sisson Lehmannersions of a machine have been introduced that are designed for the controlled steel shot, or glassbead peening on CFM 56 compressor blades. The model Pr Car 6 Gim is dedicated to the Airfoil blade peening process and uses 2x3 suction fed blasting nozzles. The model Pr Car 6 Sm is used for the root blade peening process using a pressure fed generator equipped with 2x3 blasting nozzles.

Equipped with 2 peening stations inside the cabinet chamber, the machine achieves production rates of up to 300 components an hours and has been designed for use by a single operator working within a manufacturing cell or dedicated engine repair and overhaul facility.

The parts to be peened are retained in purpose-designed polyurethane masks which locate, grip and mask the area to be processed. All processing parameters, peening duration, media flow rate, and pressure are precisely adjusted via a PLC and its associated controls.
