Nitrex Metal will supply turnkey nitriding systems to a manufacturer of OE and aftermarket automotive parts for its piston rings facilities in Europe. The pair of NX-1015 systems, which include Nitreg®-S technology for “zero white-layer” nitriding, is expected to help the company meet its increasing production output while maintaining the dimensional stability of the stainless steel and cast iron piston rings. The systems are scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2011.
