This article illustrates the plethora of different possibilities in thermochemical surface engineering (TSE) and the close interlink between science and innovation. Three widely different examples of gaseous TSE are presented: surface engineering of austenitic stainless steel by high- and low- temperature surface treatment, surface hardening of titanium by incorporation of nitrogen, oxygen and carbon, and direct synthesis of magnetic iron-nitride α”-Fe16N2. It is shown how 3D printed materials made of stainless steel and titanium can benefit from TSE.
