European Conference on Heat Treatment 2018 – Nitriding and Nitrocarburising

Following the successful editions of 1991, 1996, 2002 and 2010, the ‘European Conference on Heat Treatment 2018 – Nitriding and Nitrocarburising’ will help in keeping professionals, engineers and scientists in the areas of education, science, research and production informed about new developments.

For almost a century, nitriding and nitrocarburising have become established thermochemical heat Treatment methods for surface hardening of iron-based steel grades. They enrich the surface layer with nitrogen and, in the case of nitrocarburising with the addition of carbon. Nitriding and nitrocarburising are environmentally compatible and exhibit very little distortion, in contrast to martensitic hardening processes. Primary applications are able to reduce wear and increase strength.

In recent years these surface hardening processes have been stimulated by new know-how and continuous innovations. New applications aiming at saving energy and other resources through the use of recyclable lightweight construction, as well as applications where toxic chromium (VI) compounds, used for corrosion reduction, could be replaced by post-oxidation show impressively how up-to-date these processes are. This makes nitriding/ nitrocarburising an interesting process for improving the properties of components used in power generation, transport and mechanical engineering. Precision machining by diamond cutting of nitrided surfaces with defi ned porosity for enhanced wear resistance allow the realization of completely new applications.

Nitriding and nitrocarburising of stainless steels at low temperatures as well as deep case nitriding have already found their way into design drawings. In order to produce such different surface properties, new developments with regard to sensor technology, control and simulation in nitriding and nitrocarburising processes are necessary.

Following the successful editions of 1991, 1996, 2002 and 2010, the ‘European Conference on Heat Treatment 2018 – Nitriding and Nitrocarburising’ will help in keeping professionals, engineers and scientists in the areas of education, science, research and production informed about new developments.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
