ABP Surface Treatment

Our ABP surface provides our customers the best possible solution to overcome premature failures as a result limiting fatigue factors. Our ABP surface treatment process will improve the surface properties by increasing

  • fatigue resistance
  • surface hardness
  • delayed heat checking
  • good surface finish and
  • resist stress corrosion cracking.

The principle of ABP surface treatment is the induction of compressive stresses by impinging tool steel surface with steels shots. As a result, it creates good surface engineering properties on the profile of the dies.

These compressive stresses will work with the higher fatigue limit and later nullify and progress to the tensional mode. 

Duration of this raised stress on the negative side with high yield proportionality of the surface will be beneficial in terms of life cycle increase.

We are proud of taking responsibility of our customers production process and becoming an integral part of their production cycle. The ABP surface treatment is also provided by our esteemed brand BÖHLER and Uddeholm.

These compressive stresses created through ABP will work with the higher fatigue limit and later the normal progression to the tension mode. Due to the time delay it will give the opportunity to operate complex profiles having high thermal gradient which cannot be controlled even by the optimum design of internal cooling.

Duration of this stress at the negative side with high proportional yield of the surface will be beneficial in terms of life cycle increase.
