Interview with Dominik Dapprich, Managing Director of Stresstech GmbH at MFN international Vol. 18, July Issue, Year 2017
Shot peening produces compressive stresses to the surface of the workpiece, thus making it more durable. A common technique for measuring residual stresses of shot-peened workpieces is X-ray diffraction. The Xstress Robot system uses an industrial robot as a goniometer, thus bringing more flexibility and automation to measurement processes.
