Machine tool maker updates nitriding

Polish machine tool maker DOLFAMEX reached the decision this year to migrate to a new Nitrex nitriding system rather than upgrade an aging system with modern controls. In actual fact, the up-front investment of purchasing new equipment was lower than the engineering, maintenance, and repair costs of upgrading the current unit. The company chose the all-in-one, compact NXK-412 with integrated neutralizer, ammonia purification system, and NITREG® plus ONC® technology packages for nitriding various milling cutters. The ONC® technology was chosen to produce a matte black finish and to impart corrosion resistance to the finish. Treated milling cutters possess a harder and uniform case, which ensures long tool life.
