Nitriding applications in the automotive industry are primarily driven by cost challenges.

Case hardening is utilized to make cost-efficient materials meet performance and warranty requirements.

Application Examples

  • Engine components – crank shafts, cam shafts
  • Driveline components – gears, clutch plates, dust covers
  • Fuel systems components – fuel injection nozzles, torsion bars, valves
  • Braking system components – calipers, pistons, rotors
  • Body – shock absorbers, gas springs
  • Interior – Seat frame brackets

There is also a recent trend in the automotive industry transitioning from chrome plating to Nitriding, due to the environmental challenges inherent with the chrome plating process.
