Nitriding and Nitrocarburizing

10 years ago, work began on the development of a gas nitriding and nitrocarburizing process control system capable of monitoring deviations in the gas atmosphere of the furnace. This paper discuss the use of process sensors and computer control systems to improve process consistency and repeatability in nitriding and nitrocarburizing.

Heat Treating Stainless Steels

This paper introduces the SolNit industrial heat treatment process and its two versions: SolNit-M for martensitic and SolNit-A for austenitic stainless steels. Here, Ipsen illustrates how these processes allow low-grade stainless steel to be hardened and used in everything from surgical tools to household appliances.
