NitroTherm® Nitriding Furnaces

ASPN and VPGN

PRESS RELEASE: ALD Receives First Order for NitroTherms® for the North American Automotive Drivetrain Market!

ALD Vacuum Systems is pleased to announce the addition of NitroTherm Vacuum Nitriding Furnaces.  

Nitriding and nitro-carburizing are thermochemical treatment of the surface layers. Tribological properties – which include abrasion, adhesion and surface fatigue, mechanical properties such as endurance limit – and improved resistance to corrosion is increased. These methods are used for machine parts and gears, tools, molds, dies, etc. They are also widely used when it is not possible to make a grinding operation or if only a small distortion is allowed.

Technology at a glance:

VPGN – Vacuum Purged Gas Nitriding, controlled at any process stage providing the required results.
ASPN – Active Screen Plasma Nitriding, eliminates the need for ammonia and permits mixed loading.

Process Possibilities with NitroTherm:

  • Nitriding
  • Nitro-Carburizing.
  • Oxynitriding.
  • Post-Oxidation
  • Plasma etching
  • Plasma nitriding
  • Plasma nitro-carburizing
  • Plasma oxidation
