Shot-peening is one of the surface modification methods to increase material hardness and smoothen its surface at the same time. SS-316L, one type of biocompatible material, is commonly used in medical field particularly for joining fractured bones. However, the surface-crack-prone characteristic of SS-316L has limited its application to be used for such application. In this research, steel balls with diameter 0.4 mm is subjected to the surface of SS-316L Osteosynthesis Plate with variation of time; 9, 10, 11 and 12 minutes holding at constant pressure of 6 bar. The nozzle-to-plate distance is fixed at 100 mm. The impact of the shot balls is a deformed surface and produces a flat-like structure on osteosynthesis plate shot in 12 minutes time. The result shows that shot peening of SS 316L gives its best microstructure after 12 minutes of treatment.
