The nitriding and the nitro carburizing are performed by ionic bombardment of the metal surface.
This takes place in a vacuum chamber in a glow discharge.
The ionic nitriding is a structural modification by diffusion of nitrogen and/or carbon. This increases the surface hardness and improves wear resistance, friction and seizing.
Active screen nitriding:
The technology of ion nitriding was revolutionized by the invention of the active screen by Mr. Jean-Nicolas GEORGES.
