Ion nitriding of steel, cast iron and superalloys at TAG

TAG - Trattamenti termici

SERVICE

Ion nitriding is an efficient chemical heat treatment method to increase surface hardness of metals by taking them to a specific temperature and subsequently introducing atomic nitrogen. The nitrogen is then absorbed and diffuses into the material, compounding with iron (Fe4N, very hard) or other alloying elements.

STANDARD

Thanks to our high-technology facilities, at TAG we can perform ion plasma nitriding which creates on the surface of components a layer of nitrides whose essential properties, such as depth, hardness and composition, can undergo further testing in order to ensure the treatment has been successfully performed.

VALUE

Il processo di nitrurazione in plasma unito al know-how tecnico di TAG permette di fornire ai nostri clienti dei cicli di trattamento personalizzati, capaci di raggiungere tutte le caratteristiche necessarie al perfetto funzionamento in fase di esercizio del particolare, per quanto complesse e difficoltose le geometrie possano risultare.

Benefits of plasma nitriding

Unlike other techniques, plasma nitriding enhances the control over the whole process, thus making it reliable and reproducible. Furthermore, at TAG we use dedicated equipment to load the treated parts and to mask the surfaces. The low temperature the process is performed at optimizes the corrosion resistance of treated components.

ADVANTAGES
  • Enhanced reproducibility in the treatment results with hard and ductile layers;
  • Lower treatment temperatures, starting from 350°C;
  • Shorter processing times with same depths as the older technologies;
  • Controllable compound zone, or ‘white layer’;
  • Minimum deformation;
  • Enhanced fatigue strength;
  • Decreased friction coefficient;
  • Excellent wear resistance.
