Quality Controlled Shot-Peening for HSLA materials

Shot-Peening is used to generate surface-near compressive residual stresses in final shape parts, usually to improve their fatigue properties. The success of the process can be checked in different ways. XRD and Hole-Drilling determine quantitative stress depth profiles in specific locations. Barkhausen noise measurements evaluate a near-surface zone in real-time and can cover large areas […]

Root cause analysis

Root cause analysis results in stable and safer process at lower cost The challenge When our client (a parts manufacturer for food processing machinery) switched from stainless steel 416 to 17-4PH of 45Hrc in their profile surface grinding operations, thermal damage started occurring directly after the material change. The manufacturer turned to INNOGRIND to analyse […]

Cooling additives in grinding

Barkhausen Noise Analysis – benchmark analysis of coolant additives in the grinding process  The challenge Our customer wanted to know whether it was possible to optimize a coolant fluid in a grinding process using Barkhausen Noise Analysis. The two main issues which they wanted evaluated were grinding burn and reducing oil mist to a minimum. […]

KLM Maintenance & Engeneering

Detection of thermal damage on vital parts for the aerospace industry The challenge High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steel is widely used in the aerospace industry for the manufacture of vital parts. Hard-to-detect thermal damage to such parts – incurred during the manufacturing process – can have major and impacting consequences. KLM was looking to […]

With a share of foreign exhibitors running at approximately 60%, EMO Hannover is the world’s most international metalworking trade fair. As the leading fair of its kind, it serves as a networking hub epitomizing the highest level of […]

Top 5 root causes of grinding burn

Grinding burn or thermal damage is a common cause of machine or engine component failure. When grinding heat is not quickly detected and removed by a suitable cooling solution, it can have a big impact on the service life of the product. In order to detect grinding burn in an early stage, it is important […]
