Environmental aspects

Phenomena like wear and fatigue are present in virtually any application considered.

These problems generate incalculable costs, both economic and environmental, due to the increased consumption of tools and the need of replacement of the damaged components.

As a consequence, to increase the reliability and the life of the materials is a permanent objective for industry as it provides immediate benefits to the companies and the society in general.

Cryogenic treatments clearly contribute to the solution of these problems. A lower material consumption involves a decrease in the demand of raw materials, less scrap generation and lower energy consumption. In addition, they do it in a fully ecological way as absolutely no waste or residues are generated during the process.
