Deep rolling is a manufacturing process that efficiently increases the fatigue life of dynamically loaded components. It combines three effects to enhance fatigue strength, tribological properties and corrosion of a surface. Deep rolling: • Smoothes the surface; • Induces deep compressive stress in the surface zone; • Work-hardens the surface zone. The technology has developed into a modern, widely applicable process that improves part performance and achieves lightweight design. It has successfully been applied on stainless steels, alloy steels, brass, tool steels, nickel alloys, cast and ductile irons, aluminum, magnesium and titanium alloys [1,2,3].
