At Metal Plasma Technology (MPT) in Valencia California, we are experts in plasma ion nitriding. We perform advanced case hardening on a wide variety of steels. This process supports the aerospace, defense, power generation, oil and gas, automotive, medical, and commercial industries. Plasma ion nitriding process produces a strong surface with minimal part distortion.
MPT leads the industry in project turnaround times.
MPT operates dual vessel systems. This allows us to run parts while loading other vessels. As a result, the system automatically switches to the next vessel to keep running. This means we are running 24/7/365. Additionally, MPT has the largest plasma ion nitriding furnace available. We will process virtually any shape or size part. MPT has 570 cubic feet of processing capacity total. We process large part quantities in just a single run.
MPT adheres to aerospace industry quality standards
Aerospace Quality Systems
We are fully NADCAP accredited for heat treating and aerospace quality systems. As a result, we follow the strictest quality standards. MPT also employs experts in masking design. Proper masking design ensures parts are case hardened in precise locations. MPT is committed to helping the environment. That’s why our process is the cleanest and most efficient available.
MPT uses a pulsed plasma nitriding system
Here at MPT in Valencia California, our process is unique compared to other case hardening methods. Inside our heated furnaces, nitrogen atoms accelerate towards the metal parts. Then nitrogen atoms incorporate into the surface of the metal, cleaning the surface and diffusing into the metal. Finally, nitrogen combines with other elements within the metal (iron, manganese, chromium etc.) to form a hard-outer case. This permits a softer inner core, while providing a strong, durable and wear resistant surface that is not brittle. The benefit of this system is the operation executes at lower temperatures than other case hardening methods. Operating at lower temperatures drastically reduces part distortion. Additionally, the ion nitriding process improves the metallurgical properties of the steel. This helps lower materials cost. Our process also reduces cycle times. These advantages combine to save our customers time and money.
