Making Parts Last Longer

It can be very frustrating when a car part wears out. It can happen with even the best made cars on the market, but this is a common issue when it comes to all types of machinery. However, that’s not to say that there is no one out there trying to come up with a solution.

One way to make parts last longer is with a procedure called shot peening. This is a finishing process for use on parts made of metal. One of the reasons that such parts fail is that metal fatigue and corrosion weaken them to the point where they wear out early. Shot peening helps to prevent these occurrences, allowing for parts that last longer and reduce the amount of time and money that manufacturers must spend on that part of their manufacturing. The end goal of the process is to have comprehensive stress replace tensile stress. That makes for a superior overall part that can better stand up to expectations of durability and longevity.

Located in the same facility with its affiliate company, Plastico Industries, Latem Industries is recognized as one of Canada’s finest mass finishing organizations. Latem shot peening is used on millions of parts each year and metal finishing by Latem is a solid guarantee that parts will perform their designed function for longer.

In business for over 40 years, Latem has a reputation for delivering quality work with a very fast turnaround time.
