Universal Alloy Europe Corp., a Division of Montana Tech Components AG, chose Nitrex Metal Inc. to supply a compact nitriding system for its greenfield extrusion facility in Dumbravita, Romania. The Nitrex nitriding system is designed for a small footprint surface that allows easy implementation in the customer’s facility, which produces 7000 series hard-alloy aluminum extrusions for the aerospace market. Despite its scale, the NX-412 has a deep chamber, making it easy to load a large volume of dies weighing up to 880 pounds.
In addition, the integrated automation and Nitreg® control technology programmed for die applications will ensure process reliability and improved manufacturing productivity. Nitrex has over 250 installations in plants worldwide and has licensed its technology to heat-treating companies in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Italy, South Korea, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, the U.K. and the U.S.
