Why material treatment for your workpieces?

There are many reasons to have material treated:

  • Wear resistance of a workpiece

  • Corrosion resistance

  • Increasing tensile strength and other mechanical values

  • Durability

  • Improve temperature resistance

  • Improve sliding and running properties

Let GBS advise you on the material treatment technique for your project

Due to the amount of surface treatment techniques, it is sometimes difficult to determine which is most suitable. For example, hardening may seem like a suitable technique to increase the wear resistance of an object, but what if the toughness in the core of the material has to remain the same to avoid breaking or stress? In this case nitriding is a sensible option. Whether you have a lot or little knowledge of material and its treatment techniques; our experience shows that it is always wise to consult with each other and especially to look at the function of a workpiece and the associated risks.
