Nitrex Metal, a member of United Process Controls, has supplied several turnkey nitriding systems to four automotive parts manufacturers. Pit and horizontal furnace installations were completed for Cimos Group’s manufacturing facility in Kikinda, Serbia, for nitriding Honeywell turbocharger inserts. Nitrex also completed the start-up of a horizontal furnace at Groupe Streit – another manufacturer of turbocharger inserts – in France.

Teikoku Piston Ring Co. Ltd. has taken delivery of a Nitrex nitriding system incorporating Nitreg®-S technology for nitriding stainless steels. Scherdel Group ordered an identical system as a replacement to salt-bath nitriding of flat-form springs.
