Our Industries


Premier Shot’s conditioned cut wire shot is tripled conditioned to AMS 2431/ 3, 4, and 8 specification – required by GE, P&W, BA, Bombardier, and many OEM of aerospace manufacturers. Premier’s triple conditioned shot is more spherical than industrial standards to prevent surface damage that could cause structural failure of precision components.


Premier Shot’s Normal Conditioned Cut wire shot is ideal for shot peening gears, bolts, weldments or any steel product and offers substantial production benefits especially for the automotive industry:

  • Longer Life
  • High Quality Raw Materials – unlike others, we never use scrap steel!
  • Closely Controlled Hot & Cold Working Processing – produces an extremely sound wrought structure
  • Consistent Size – especially when compared to cast shot
  • Consistent Chemistry

Premier will recommend the correct size and hardness of media to meet your specific requirement for small to large radiuses.


Premier Shot’s stainless steel media is conditioned to produce an exceptionally smooth and round media. This media is preferred for medical peening processes, as precision medical components require both a high quality surface and component structure.
