MicroBlasting and Precision Shot Peening. MicroBlasting is precision sand blasting used for surface texturing, selective cleaning, precision deburring and controlled erosion of small, intricate parts. Precision Shot Peening focuses on smaller parts with tight tolerances, reducing or eliminating the need for masking. Comco has over 40 years experience developing and manufacturing both manual and automated systems.
Shot Peening: Create a compressive residual stress layer to prevent crack propagation and surface corrosion and to increase the fatigue life of a part.
Surface Texturing: Enhance the adhesion characteristics of a surface for bonding or modify the surface for cosmetic reasons.
Selective Cleaning: Remove undesirable substances, thin films or residues from a surface.
Precision Deburring: Remove fine burrs on a wide range of materials from exotic metal alloys to soft polymers. Controlled Erosion: Erode a surface a few microns at a time to accurately mill pockets and channels.
