The company Plasmanitriertechnik was founded in September 1996 by Mrs. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sabine Böhm. Our core competence is plasma heat treatment and development in the fields of plasma and material technologies as well as the associated systems engineering.
Since its foundation, our company has been a reliable partner of the machine building, automotive and tool manufacturing industry. Our services and core competencies in the filed of contract treatment include plasma nitriding, plasma nitrocarburizing and oxidation. We continuously extend our capacities for the processes offered in order to meet the growing demand for these surface hardening methods.
Today our company can look back on more than 20 years of steadily growing business. Since the beginning the number of customers and order volumes have been quickly growing and today we use 9 systems for plasma nitriding and nitrocarburizing. So in 2005 we had to move from the old location in the Technology Center Chemnitz to our company building in the Robert-Blum-Straße Chemnitz in order to expand our capacities. Since 2005 we manufacture our systems by ourselves and since 2010 we also design and develop them in-house. In addition to manufacturing of our own equipment, many system engineering projects for various customers have been implemented.
Beside the contract plasma treatment and system manufacturing, we work on research and development projects to improve existing technologies, establish innovative processes and design and produce new systems. The research topics include the plasma polishing, atmospheric plasma treatment as well as the use of existing technology in other application areas. For this we work closely together with a large number of partners from industry, universities and research institutions.
The number of employees has been increased from initially 2 to currently 15 full-time and part-time employees. Many trainees have completed their compulsory internships at our company. Students of universities, polytechnics and technical colleges wrote their diploma, bachelor and technicians projects on plasma nitriding and related topics.
For the future, it is essential for us to keep up our development. By implementing research and development projects we want to develop existing technologies. New systems should be designed and manufactured. We want to be at the disposal of our customers and execute orders quickly and in proven excellent quality.
