Landing Gear Peening and Treatment

Prepared For Landing

Whether you need to shot peen the entire landing gear or wish to spot peen sections of the landing gear for repair, Wheelabrator will propose the most suitable solution.

The challenge for the aircraft sector is to address the issue of fatigue failure common in most metals: talk to the aerospace and peening experts at Wheelabrator to find the right solution for your application.

Landing Gear Shot Peening By Airblast Technology

Spot shot peening and/or peening of the entire landing gear can be achieved by airblast techniques utilising multiple nozzles and lances.

A polyarticulated robot or carriage combined with multiple nozzles and lances can operate in a variety of axes to process parts with complex geometries.

In this manner simultaneous shot peening of external and internal surfaces can be achieved.

Landing Gear Paint Removal

For maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of landing gear in situ, a closed circuit blast machine can be used for paint removal and other blast cleaning applications.

When the landing gear is removed from the aircraft a much more thorough treatment is possible using air or wheelblast technology, as above.
