Ion Nitriding

Ion Nitriding Instrument

test:

The ion nitriding method was invented by B.Berghaus, Germany, in 1932, and started to be put to practical use in German and Swiss companies around 1967. NDK quickly noticed this new heat treating method. As a result of our own research, we developed the first ion nitriding instrument in Japan in 1973, and started manufacturing and consigned processing services. Currently, our JIN series are the world's top selling products and are highly regarded for their stable performance, high reliability and usability.

test:

We provide instructions and advice for users regarding processing technologies, according to the originally developed processing techniques and rich technical data as well as a full range of customer services, such as maintenance to meet customers' needs.

Advantage

feature1The nitriding processing using ionized nitrogen gas does not involve any chemical reactions and provides a clean working environment without the need for special anti-pollution equipments.

feature2Utilizing the sputtering reaction of the ionized gas largely reduces the operation time compared with the conventional nitriding processing.

feature3Direct heating by glow discharge realizes an even temperature distribution without conventional additional heating or warming devices. The heating efficiency is improved by a factor of two or more, which contributes to energy saving.

feature4Extremely small gas consumption reduces the running cost.

feature5The nitriding processing can be performed at 380 ˚C or higher. For titanium, etc., the high-temperature processing of 850 ˚C can also be performed.

feature6Because of the vacuum processing, the processed surface can be obtained in a nonoxidized state with little deterioration of the surface roughness. Additionally, a low temperature processing produces very little distortion and does not require any post-processing, which is ideal for processing the finished product.

feature7By adjusting the gas ratios of N2, H2, and X, the composition of the compound layer can be adjusted selectively.
The desired mechanical properties can be obtained according to the purpose.

feature8The best condition for nitriding can be selected according to the material and the pre-processing. Nitriding masking can be performed easily.

Ion Nitriding Method

Ion Nitriding Method

In a nitrogen gas mixture atmosphere at 13.3 Pa to 1.3 kPa, where the furnace is the positive electrode and the processing target is the negative electrode, applying a DC voltage of several hundred volts causes a glow discharge. A soft light similar to a neon light covers the processing target object. At this step, the ionized gas component is rapidly accelerated and collides with the surface of the processing target causing heating. At the same time, nitridization proceeds due to the sputtering effects.
