3T Trattamenti Termici Torino was founded in 1970 as a services company for the purpose of performing heat treatments for third parties on ferrous and non-ferrous materials, providing them with greater resistance to wear, fatigue, scuffing and corrosion.
3T started working with two plants, which progressing over the years with expansion of the operational areas have become more than fifty and currently represent the best of technology in the industry at a global level.
The treatments that 3T performs chiefly concern those in a controlled atmosphere, such as: Carburizing, Carbonitriding, Austempering on cast iron, Hardening and Tempering, Normalization, Annealing, Gas Nitrocarburizing and Gas Nitriding.
Furthermore, an absolutely ecological treatment known as Nit.Ru.Less. has been patented, which in addition to improving the wear and fatigue resistance of treated parts, makes them highly corrosion resistant. This treatment was included in FCA – Fiat Chrysler Automobiles specifications on 8 October 2015, under number 9.57104 and with the caption “corrosion resistant anti-wear treatment”. Thus, from that date, all nitriding followed by oxidation is developed for FCA – Fiat Chrysler Automobiles via Nit.Ru.Less., in Italy and throughout Europe. 3T serves the automotive (cars, industrial vehicles and earth-moving machines) and machine tools markets.
