Cut Wire Shot is the media of preference for peening, cleaning, tumbling, and vibratory finishing. It is widely used in wheel blast equipment. It can be of two shapes as-cut (cylindrical with sharp edges) or conditioned (rounded to a sphere). Cut Wire Shot is formed from cold drawn spring steel wire with a high carbon (C) content that is obtained by cutting wire into lengths equal to the wire diameter and then conditioning (rounding) it if necessary. Cut-wire shot is of high quality because the wire used to make it is heat-treated and cold drawn to achieve hardness and homogeneity. Cut-wire shot will not fracture, break, or powder due to this, as well as the balanced chemical qualities and total solidity of each piece. These cut wire shots are highly durable in nature and can be customized to various specifications. They are high in versatility, and these can be made from various different materials. Our product range is as follows:- Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot, Low Hardness High Manganese Steel Cut Wire Shot, Stainless Steel Cut Wire Shots, Zinc Cut Wire Shots, Aluminum Cut Wire Shots, Brass Cut Wire Shots, Copper Cut Wire Shot, etc.

Types of Cut Wire Shots

We manufacture various types of Cut Wire Shot which can be listed as follows:


Because of its sharp edge, it's best used for cleaning where speed is crucial and a slightly rough finish is acceptable. However, it is not recommended use for peeing operations since it can impair fatigue life.

Cut Wire Shot


Shots that have been rounded off by a conditioning process. Cut wire shot made of conditioned carbon steel is a precise instrument. It is manufactured from carbon steel wire of a specific diameter and tensile strength using special cutting machinery and then shot blasted. It is most commonly employed in the shot peening process, as well as in other industries such as the automotive, aerospace, and shipping industries.

  • Spherical Conditioned Cut Wire- G1 (Normal Conditioned)
  • Spherical Conditioned Cut Wire- G2 (Double Conditioned)
  • Spherical Conditioned Cut Wire- G3 (Special Conditioned)

Cut Wire Shot

Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot

Cast steel abrasives are often replaced by carbon steel cut wire shot. This is especially useful in peening/blasting situations where a higher level of abrasive hardness is desired or when the peened/blasted components have a high level of inherent hardness. It's the perfect abrasive for the shot peening and blasting.

Cut Wire Shot

Higher-Manganese Low Carbon Conditioned Wire Shot

Apart from the positive visual benefits, if components are blasted with wire shots to generate the surface polish, production economics plays a vital role. If the component hardness is less than 40 HRC, it is considered low-hardness. The first choice is a high-manganese steel cut wire shot. The exceptional qualities of this abrasive include a great lifespan due to a higher Manganese percentage and minimal plant wear and tear.

The usage of High-Manganese spring steel wire with low hardness is favorable. This abrasive grit is impact-resistant and absorbs impact uniformly throughout the entire shot surface. The lower the hardness, the longer the lifespan. Unlike high-carbon abrasives, no surface cracks are visible, resulting in significantly longer plant component longevity with minimal wear.

Cut Wire Shot

Advantages of Cut Wire Shots

  • Most economical, cheap and has the lowest consumption
  • Consumption 3-4 times less compared to cast shot
  • No dust formation while used in the process
  • Provide a faster cleaning rate.
  • Environment friendly in nature
  • Has uniform hardness
  • Stabilized grain size in appearance

Applications of Cut Wire Shots

Cut Wire Shots (also known as pellets) are used to clean, deburr, descale, fettle, and shot peen iron and steel components. Various hardness ranges are available depending on the application. The harder the material, the less durable it is. Wire cut shots have left a surface that is extraordinarily brilliant and smooth. It's a full-bodied shot with no scales or oxides; it produces no dust and leaves a cleaner, brighter surface than other abrasives.

Features of Cut Wire Shots

  • Its cylindrical shape with rounded corners makes cleaning easier. The cleaning rate of your Blasting Machine will eventually be boosted by at least 25%.
  • When shot blasting a tonne of material, you'll need 4 kg of shot, however with cut wire shots, you'll only need 1.5 kg.
  • Excellent homogeneity and equal hardness and size.
  • The cut wire shots become conditioned (spherical) after a few hours of use during the shot blasting process due to their natural inclination
  • Shots live for days and weeks due to their fine grain size, until each one is reduced to a microparticle; they do not break down into dust.
  • Because cut wire shots keep peening intensity longer than any other shot type, components peened/blasted with cut wire shots have a substantially longer life than those peened/blasted with any other shot type.
  • The shot used in shot peening/blasting should be at least as hard as Almen strips or the peened/blasted portion.
  • Cut wire shots minimize maintenance and warehouse costs by being utilized in more cycles (3-5 times).
  • Surface Contamination is reduced.
  • There are no blowholes, tails, or porosity in this substance.
  • Shot peening/blasting time can be cut down.
  • Unlike other abrasives, it cleans quickly and leaves a brilliant, smooth finish.
  • Increases the blasted objects' fatigue life.
  • During operation, there is no dust or health risk.
