MONOMETER IONITECH PLASMA NITRIDING & NITROCARBURISING
Monometer Ionitech installations also have the possibility of plasma nitrocarburising where customers achieve the same results as using the Tennifer process, but avoiding all its disadvantages including cost and toxicity.Plasma nitriding has many advantages over gas nitriding, where plasma is particularly cost effective as treatment times are reduced by a factor of between 3 and 5, there is a 50% reduction in energy consumption, and a 50 to 100 times reduction in the use of the working gas.
Plasma nitriding also has significant process advantages:•The pay-back period for a new furnace is usually 9 – 12 months.•The process is completely non-toxic and easily meets all the requirement of Health & Safety regulations and Environmental control.•There is less distortion of the material being treated because ion nitriding is performed at a lower temperature of 480 C - 570°C, and under a vacuum. Surfaces which require masking are easily masked with re-usable mechanical masking devices, which are 100% effective.•A higher surface, case, and core hardness are achieved.•Wear resistance of the finished product is excellent because the ion nitriding process produces a compound zone which is dense, non-porous, very hard but not brittle, and has a low co-efficient of friction.•The results are easily reproducible, because the process of ion nitriding is fully automated, and computer controlled.•Satisfactory surface finishes are achieved without additional mechanical treatment because there is minimal deformation of the surfaceSo why do so many companies continue to use the old Gas nitriding method? Probably there is a reluctance to change the technology which has served well over many years, and there may be a fear that the new technology will be expensive to implement. Monometer Ionitech, offer our clients not only very affordable installations of Plasma Nitriding, but a full commissioning service to ensure that the best possible quality is achieved using their new technology. The installation has been designed to be fully automated, and any operator can be trained to work with the furnace within one or two days. Monometer Ionitech has a 25-year tradition in the production and installation for plasma nitriding with more than 120 installations in 11 countries.Concerning the perceived high costs of plasma nitriding the Monometer Ionitech installation costs less than new installations for gas nitriding, and Monometer Ionitech offer 12 standard models with working volumes from 0.1m3 to 5 m3 together with the possibility of special vacuum chamber sizes to meet client needs.Monometer Ionitech installations also have the possibility of plasma nitrocarburising where customers achieve the same results as using the Tennifer process, but avoiding all its disadvantages including cost and toxicityMonometer Ionitech offer affordable Plasma Nitriding Furnaces, and will be very pleased to receive your enquiries for nitriding and Nitrocarburising.
