Carbonitriding, Quenching and Tempering

Heat Treatment
Carbonitriding, Quenching and Tempering

PROCESS DESCRIPTION

The Carbonitriding, Quenching and Tempering process is a thermochemical treatment that consists of hardening the surface of the steel by adding carbon and nitrogen and their diffusion, with the aim of improving its resistance to wear while maintaining the toughness of the core.

CARBONITRIDING, QUENCHING AND TEMPERING. HEAT TREATMENT.

APLICATIONS

Low-alloy steels and steels without alloy in parts that once in service will be subject to wear, friction, rolling and/or contact as well as traction, compression, bending and/or torsion forces.

PROCESS DETAILS

  • Customized treatments for each part based on the mechanical requirements, used materials and morphology.
  • Batch type carbonitriding furnaces with German technology.
  • Control and monitoring of the atmosphere during all the heat treatment to achieve a correct carbonitriding
  • Recirculation system that ensures a homogeneous supply of the gas.
  • Control and monitoring of process temperatures during all the heat treatment.
  • Register of all parameters and process controls, traceable with Customer registers.
  • Regarding carburization, the carbonitriding process allows to replace alloyed steels with other low alloy steels, carbon steels or unalloyed steels.
  • Great production capacity
