Project Description: During the manufacturing process of titanium aircraft components areas that need to be shot-peened must be removed from the machining center and the peening process must be performed in a different, often off-site location.  Boeing Peening team

Currently our design allows for the process to be almost completely automated with only one manual connection required.  Our primary concerns are minimizing the size of the adaptor unit and ensuring the vibrations of the ultrasonic peening unit are sufficiently damped so as to not damage the CNC mill.
