Process micro shot-peening

Micro shot-peening is a mechanical process carried out on metals which removes residue, impurities and corrosion scaling from surfaces using a jet of sand and air. 

The treatment carried out by Alticolor meets the requirements of the medical/dental sectors and high-end goods.

Since 1996, Alticolor has been the trusted point of reference for companies in need of treatments on titanium components.

How we support our customers


A turning shop contacted Alticolor to resolve an issue linked to using worn tools to make titanium screws. Basically the vibrations caused by the tools were causing micro-cracks in the screws, making them brittle. We suggested our micro shot-peening treatment, which eliminated the cracks and restored the failure load values such that they fell within an acceptable range.

Alticolor treatments undergo rigorous control procedures
resulting in certification to guarantee the quality
of the process management.
