Nitriding is a thermochemical treatment with which the surface zone of ferrous materials is enriched with nitrogen. Nitriding processes provide your material excellent corrosion defence and outstanding protection against wear while allowing the dynamic characteristics of components made of ferrous materials to be improved. If at the same time carbon diffuses into the surface zone as a result of the addition of a carbon source to the nitriding medium, the process is called nitrocarburising. Both methods are used primarily for providing wear protection or your material.
Bürkert supports both nitriding and nitrocarbonising with high precision components, and we will work with you to create system solutions fit to your specifications.
