"This book, Shot Peening, comprises a series of articles, each written by an acknowledged expert in the field. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in using shot peening to improve the performance of structural components, particularly those that are expected to experience subsequent fatigue loading."

Prof. Lothar Wagner
Acting Director, Institute of Materials Science and Engineering, Clausthal University of Technology, Germany


"I am pleased to note that MFN pooled its team of experts to write a book on shot peening. The technical contents provide good coverage on the subject and serve as a very useful guide and training reference to industries."

James Leung
Deputy Director, Mechanical Engineering Division, School of Engineering, Ngee Ann Polytechnic Singapore


Shot peening is a critical process that, in many industries, needs to be certified before being applied. However, looking at the technical literature available about this process, few useful books can be found on the market. Over a decade ago, the initiative was taken to start publishing a book that teaches about this process. The book is updated on a regular base and this is now the fifth completely revised edition. The book has become a bestseller in the shot peening industry and thousands of copies have been sold to countries throughout the world.

The MFN organization offers shot peening training for different educational levels. It is supported by 19 offices and over 60 members from around 20 countries. Furthermore, MFN has access to three permanently available shot peening training centers that teach not only classroom courses, but also practical training on shot peening machines and auxiliary equipment. Over the years, MFN has gone into partnerships and cooperation agreements with various educational organizations. MFN benefits from a global network, a unique feature in the metal finishing industry. The fifth edition of SHOT PEENING has tapped many of these resources to publish a piece of technical literature that is a true guide for technicians and experts in the field of shot peening.
