Accurate Steel Treating of Southgate, Calif., is now nitriding 300 series stainless steel thanks to a recent upgrade to the Super Systems Inc. (SSi) automated nitriding system. The SSi system includes all the controls to provide a fully automated nitriding process. The installation supported a multi-furnace configuration where the furnaces could be selected for automated controls. The various sizes of gas nitriding furnaces utilizing these controls allows Accurate Steel Treating to process a range of product and load sizes.
The information gathered using SSi’s data-acquisition system provided Accurate with the data it needed during the test runs, and the recipe controller’s features simplified process development.
