Plasma nitriding is a lowpressure process in which voltage is applied between the batch and the furnace wall a glow discharge with a high ionization level plasma is generated around the parts being treated

Plasma nitriding is a low-pressure process in which voltage is applied between the batch and the furnace wall; a glow discharge with a high ionization level (plasma) is generated around the parts being treated.

Focusing Treatment to Improve Die Surfaces

The first-phase results are in concerning plasma nitriding as a way to modify tooling and mold materials to extend performance life “Plasma Enhanced Nanostructures …" Imparting high surface hardness

Forging die failure is a multi-dimensional problem for forging operators, one that slows production, degrades the quality of finished parts, increases the cost of tools and dies, and incurs the time and cost of equipment repairs, among various problems. According to Advanced Heat Treat Corp., a survey of forging operators recently reveled that as the batch sizes increase, machine set-up costs will go down but tooling costs will rise.

Various thermal processes are used indust
