Additive manufacturing of aluminum alloys promises to considerably enhance the performance of lightweight critical parts in various applications. However, the surface defects obtained from the as-built parts affect their mechanical properties, and thus represent an obstacle to using them as final products. This study shows that the Shot Peening of the as-built AlSi10Mg surfaces could result in the elimination of the surface defects, microstructure refinement, surface hardening, and the application of high compressive stress into a specific depth from the sample surface. This could lead to an improvement of the mechanical properties and fatigue strength of the sample surface, and thus might satisfy the requirements of some critical parts in aerospace and automotive fields.
