Unique in Europe

17 December, 2019

This non-destructive test for checking machining damage or ‘grinding burn’ of a hardened steel component becomes much more important to our customers. We started thinking about solutions as Nital Etch installations didn’t exist for such big gears in Europe. Either go out of Europe or do it ourselves were the options we had. Fast, it became clear that we should implement the Nital Etch in our plant. Why? We can shorten our lead times and we will fully own this process, which gives us control and the possibility to guarantee the customer that the test was done correctly and no grinding burn was detected. Our team of engineers started to work on this project almost from scratch, as such a big installation did not exist yet. Our installation is fully operational in the meantime.
