Chinese Gear Maker in Midst of Expansion Program
To date, eight turnkey systems have been successfully installed and commissioned at the Nanjing plant. Nitrex’s involvement is in the front-end engineering phase of the project, including system and process control design, licensing of Nitreg®-C nitrocarburizing technology, and on-site operation and testing of the systems. Nitreg®-C technology was chosen by NGC for its compliance to AGMA 923 metallurgical specification for steel gearing. In addition, NGC chose the Protherm 9800 production management software supplied by Marathon Monitors Beijing, a member of United Process Controls, to perform data acquisition, recipe management and monitoring of the Nitrex nitriding systems as well as three preheat ovens and two parts washers.
