Expanite Treatment Center (ETC)
– The straight-forward option for the fastest lead-times in the industry!
For some, using an ETC is a stepping stone towards a license solution, while for the majority of customers, Expanite treatment centers are a well-proven and stable source for surface hardening and heat treatment, whether single-piece handled small series or millions of components treated in bulk. No matter the need and background, the core of an ETC is a modern versatile capacity for surface hardening and heat treatment. When other providers of stainless steel hardening speak about weeks, Expanite counts days - and this is while doing it in the most sustainable way, reducing the use of chemicals and carbon footprint compared with competitive processes.
