Nitrex Metal Inc. delivered and installed a compact Nitreg® nitriding system to MPC Products Corp. (Niles, Ill.). The NX-409 model is a scaled-down version of the heavy-duty industrial line of NX models and is suitable for general aerospace, laboratory and testing purposes as well as nitriding production on a small scale. The furnace is equipped with a process management system that provides tight control of nitriding processes and excellent repetition of results to ensure compliance to NADCAP requirements.

MPC Products, which manufactures high-performance electromechanical motion control systems for aerospace applications, will use the system to nitride actuator components made from different alloys.
