Plasma Shock Peening is a method of strengthening and hardening of a metal surface. This could be the metallic surface layer of an aircraft engine, power turbine, water pump, ship propeller, or even a medical device. The surface treated by PSP becomes more resistant to cyclic mechanical loading and abrasion.
