Plasma Nitriding for Forged Medical Instruments

Metal forging and hot-forming applications are commonly faced with expensive tooling repairs that require costly downtime and further disruptions to the production line. Our trademarked ion nitriding process gives medical equipment providers a low-temperature, environmentally friendly solution that produces high-strength, wear-resistant cases for medical equipment.

Ion Nitriding to Enhance the Strength and Durability of Medical Equipment

The forging process subjects production equipment to extreme heat and stress, causing wear and tear on even the most durable industrial steel tooling. Even case-hardened steels and conventionally nitrided components can quickly wear out when they are utilized in high-volume commercial forging projects. Naturally, worn tooling leads to complex maintenance procedures and costly downtime in your production.
