Abstract

A novel method for fast and versatile low temperature nitrocarburising of stainless steel has recently been invented by the present authors. Selected results obtained with this new surface hardening process are presented. It is shown that it is possible to obtain a case thickness of 20 μm on austenitic AISI 316 within a process cycle time of 90 minutes, and a case thickness of 35 μm on martensitic AISI 420 within a process cycle time of 75 minutes.
