STAINLESS STEEL CUT WIRE  
     
 
 
     
  Stainless Steel Cut Wire is widely used for shot peening to give compressive residual stress in the surface layer of components for fatigue life enhancement and suppression of stress corrosion cracking as well as cleaning and polishing of the surface of metal parts, deburring of diecast parts, is of reusable and recyclable, the working life is 1000 times of glass bead. Stainless steel cut wire can produce very bright surface, but create much less dust than glass beads, natural and artificial corundum abrasives.
 
Stainless Steel Cut Wire is a popular alternative to cast steel abrasives, and finds specific niche markets where cast materials do not offer adequate performance. This is particular true for peening applications where a higher level of abrasive hardness is desirable or when components to be peened have a high level of inherent hardness.
 
The ideal peening media should contain particles of identical size, shape, hardness and density in order to produce repeatable peening results. Stainless steel cut wire is manufactured from wire strand cut to lengths equal to its diameter. This results in particles virtually identical in size, shape hardness and density and thus a media ideally suited for peening purposes. It will work harden the more it is used during the operation and lead to an extremely long abrasive life span.
