Plasma Metal


Staff number : 10-49

Description of activities

Plasma Metal manufactures an innovative system for surface treatment by plasma which uses an active cathodic grid (TC-Process or "active screen" nitriding).

Thanks to this system the plasma is not formed directly on the surface of the parts to be treated.

This technology is especially used for the surface treatment of steels and titanium alloys. It improves the surface hardness and the wear resistance. The treatment can be applied to ready machined parts.

Products and services

Plasma Metal sells plasma nitriding equipment using the patented active screen technology.
