This SAE Standard and its supplementary detail specifications cover the engineering requirements for the controlled shot peening of a medical device where shot peening is required for enhancement of a material's mechanical properties through the intentional creation of compressive residual stress.
The intent of this document is to establish an industry standard for the shot peening of a medical device. The focus of this standard is to address the undefined requirements needed for shot peening in the medical device industry that are not included in current shot peening standards used by other industries.
