Plasma Nitriding of Deep Narrow Cavities
Technology of plasma nitriding is widely used to increase the surface hardness, fatigue strength, wear and corrosion resistance of steels [1, 2]. In this study, the properties of plasma nitrided steel of various diameters at various pressures are investigated. There was obtained new information about possibilities of plasma nitriding technology and its applications to the cavities with diameters of 6, 8 and 10 mm and a penetration depth of 400 mm.
