cut wire

cut wire

Used mainly for shot peening applications, cut wire is renowned for its long lasting life. It produces less dust than steel shot and provides a superior finish.  Available in cut wire and conditioned cut wire.




Conditioned cut wire especially for shot peening application.

Quasi-spherical shot, because of its tight tolerance on hardness and size, generates extremely repeatable results in your application.  The shot is highly resistant to breakage, it generates less dust than standard shot, and has a prolonged life.


Cut wire.


Excellent reproducibility for your blast or peening process because of controlled particle size and hardness.It also generates less dust than standard shot.
