Nitriding belongs to the thermochemical processes. During this processes the surface of several workpieces or machine parts is enriched with nitrogen to improve the mechanic properties of the surface of the workpieces or machine parts.
During nitriding the components are exposed to a nitrogen emitting environment at a temperature between 480-580 ⁰C, whereby this nitrogen is diffused in the surface of the component.
Available Nitriding processes are:
