Experience (not only) on the surface
Our history

The name Dr. Böhm stands for highest competence in plasma heat treatment – and this already since 1996, the year in which our company was founded by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sabine Böhm. Since then we have been acting as a reliable partner of the machine and vehicle construction as well as toolmaking industry.

Our core competence is plasma heat treatment as well as research and development in the fields of plasma and material technologies. In order to meet the constantly growing demand for surface hardening possibilities such as plasma nitriding, plasma nitrocarburizing and oxidation, we are constantly expanding our capacities for the contract treatments we offer.

After more than 20 years of business activity we look back on a continuous growth. In the beginning, the number of customers and order volumes increased rapidly, so that in the meantime ten plants for plasma nitriding and nitrocarburizing are in constant operation. With our move from the Technology Center Chemnitz to our current location in the Robert-Blum-Strasse in 2005 we created the optimal conditions for this.

Since 2005 we have been manufacturing the equipment we use ourselves, and since 2010 we have also taken over the construction. Not only our own plants, but also several plant construction projects for various customers have been successfully realized in the past years.

In addition to contract processing and plant construction, existing technologies are further developed in research and development projects, innovative processes are established and new plants are designed and built. Research topics include plasma polishing, atmospheric plasma treatment and the use of existing technology in new fields of application. We work closely together with numerous partners from industry, universities and research institutes.

What began with two employees is today a strong team of 14 full- and part-time employees. In addition, students from universities and technical colleges as well as technical colleges enrich our company – for example in the context of compulsory internships or dual studies. We have successfully supervised numerous diploma, bachelor and technical theses on plasma nitriding and related topics.

Our mission for the future: We don’t want to stand still, but to lead the way. With research and development projects, we continue to develop our technologies and strengthen our position in the industry. In the future, too, we want to support our customers with comprehensive services and convince them with the highest quality.
