SONATS provides ultrasonic shot peening treatment services in its subcontracting workshop in Carquefou (44) for offloading or series production.
You're facing a production ramp-up or wish to subcontract your shot peening activity, contact-us! Many OEMs already trust us thanks to our cross-market experience: aero-structure, aero-engine, engine and transmission, railway, energy, medical, etc…
Steel welded bridges are subject to fatigue failure, Ultrasonic Needle Peening is probably the most suitable process to improve the fatigue life of new or in service bridges. In partnership with the Bowen Lab of Purdue University (Indiana, USA), SONATS and EMPOWERING TECHNLOGIES began a project to demonstrate the capability of UNP process on full scale girder specimens.
Manufactured and tested specimens represent similar geometries and details of typical North American bridges.
The objective of this study is to prove that the UNP can improve the fatigue category for different locations on bridges as:
For these reached categories, the detail life time is considered as infinite with regard to fatigue.

Juliette TRICOIRE (SONATS), explains, in the last issue of The Shot Peener magazine, how this reliable process (Ultrasonic Shot Peening) used by Automotive, Aerospace, Energy... industries, can be semi ou fully-embedded on special-purpose machines or even using robotized cells.
The technology and process are described, differences with conventionnal shot peening are highlighted and a focus is made on how this robust process can keep up with important prodution rates.
SONATS will attend and exhibit at the 16th Middle East Corrosion Conference & Exhibition, to be held on February 8th- 11th 2016, at the Gulf International Convention Center, Gulf Hotel in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain. With our local partner, Virtual Scientific Industries, we will be glad to present you our latest Ultrasonic Peening solutions to prevent Metal Stress Cracking Corrosion and enhance fatigue lifetime. You will be very welcome at our booth A10

Full customer satisfaction has been one of our main target again this year 2015. In 2016, our teams will keep on optimizing our work process to meet on go beyond customers and partners' requirements.
Sonats improves truck components by making them stronger. A demonstration of Ultrasonic Needle Peening at University West (Högskolan Väst, Sweden).
Newly presented research at University West makes it possible to produce light weight chassis in trucks by a welding process. This is possible through improved fatigue properties of welded components in high steel strength.
