Harbor Metal Treating has installed an automated nitriding system from Super Systems Inc. The system, which includes a combination of SSi controls, gas analyzers and software, has all the necessary safeties and controls to provide a fully automated lights-out process. With the new controls and SSi SuperData supervisory control and data acquisition system, Harbor Metal Treating has seen significant throughput and quality benefits in their production process.

The control system provides automatic cycle controls with less operator involvement, creating an error-free environment and delivering more repeatable, traceable and high-quality products. Harbor Metal Treating operates facilities in Benton Harbor, Mich., and South Bend, Ind.
