ThermoniteSM (Gaseous Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing) is a unique Nitro-carburizing surface treatment that answers the needs of hot work and cold work tool manufacturers. Thermonite creates a high wear resistance in ferrous alloys, and is suitable for parts requiring high surface hardness, wear and erosion resistance, as well as resistance to atmospheric corrosion. Being a low temperature process, it creates minimal risk of distortion or loss of any vital engineering properties.
Why choose Thermonite?:
CryothermSM (Nitrogen Cryogenic Treatment) process is a controlled sequence of repeated heating and cooling to cryogenic temperatures, which enhance tool performance in terms of higher fatigue strength, wear resistance hardness and dimensional stability. In this process, optimum properties are attained through a fine balance between the heat treatment process parameters, special tempering cycles and precise control over the cooling operations.
Our Thermox process is used to produce a stable thin layer of oxide on the surface of a component through a controlled oxidation process. We also offerThermox II which is a duplex process for even greater surface integrity.
Our metallurgical laboratory offers a wide range of inspection, testing and failure analysis services, designed to assist our clients in solving everything from the very simple to the most complex metallurgical issues. Our approach is to detect the root cause of the issue and offer realistic solutions to solve your metallurgical problems.
Our services include:
Tool steel welding is often needed for die-casting dies, large forging dies, plastic molding, car body dies and blanking tools – in cases such as a repair or an engineering change, where welding can be done more cost effectively than producing new tooling.
Welding of tooling may be required for any of the following:
