cut wire shot are manufactured from high quality wire, each particle is cut to a length about equal to its diameter. If required, the particles are conditioned (rounded) to remove the sharp corners produced during the cutting process. Strict Quality Control procedures are required to be able to manufacture cut wire shot meeting all common industry specifications as well as many individual customer specifications.
As-cut particles are an effective abrasive due to the sharp edges created in the cutting process. However, as-cut shot is not a desirable shot peening media. The sharp edges, which are potentially damaging to fatigue life, must be removed in a process called "conditioning".
Conditioned Cut Wire (CCW) shot is normally manufactured in two degrees of conditioning - Normal Conditioning which meets the shape requirements of SAE J441 specification, and the more rounded Special Conditioning which meets the requirements of Aerospace specifications such as AMS 2431.
Versatility - One of the most important aspects of cut wire shot is its versatility. We make Cut Wire Shot from many materials: Stainless Steels (Type 302, Type 304, Type 430 and others), 1070 Carbon steel of various
hardness levels, Brass, Copper, Aluminum, Zinc and Nickel alloys. Size of media is not limited to the standards. Conditioning is offered in Standard.
Degrees: As-cut, Normal and Special. Other degrees of Conditioning can be supplied as well. Hardness ranges other than those discussed above can also be supplied.
cut wire shot are available in Carbon and Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Zinc, and Nickel alloys and in all commonly used sizes. Standard Hardness ranges for carbon steel cut wire shot are: Regular - HRC 45-
55, High - HRC 55-60 and Special - HRC 50-55.
25 kg. bags or 50 kg. bags. In case of export packing size can be provided as desired.
