Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial
German term or phrase: Lohnbehandlung / Lohnhärterei
I am really struggling to find out the meaning of 'Lohn', and not in the 'wages' sense.
I am translating a company profile and the company specialises in 'Oberflächenbearbeitungen und Behandlungen zum Verschleiß- und Korrosionsschutz moderner Bauteile'. And then comes a very problematic sentence:
'neben der Herstellung von Anlagen werden Versuchs- und Lohnbehandlung angeboten.
Also:
'Kunden kommen aus den Bereichen Lohnhärterei, Automobilindustrie, ...'
Finally, the company describes its activities as:
Entwicklung, Produktion und Vertrieb von Anlagen zur Plasmaoberflächenbehandlung sowie Dienstleistungen als Lohnbehandlung.'
Any help with this sentence or just on Lohnbehandlung would be appreciated.

I agree with above answer


Explanation:
I came across the term 'Lohnhaerterei' in a translation I was doing for a small engineering company a few months ago, and I too was very puzzled by it. I therefore actually phoned the company to enquire what it means, and can confirm that the above answer is correct.

Explanation:
I may collect a few more fat zeros for this, but if you visit the following website:
http://www.hanolohn.de/leistungen/index.htm
from Hanomag, who claim
"Wir, die Hanomag Lohnhärterei Unterneh-
mensgruppe, gehören zu den national
führenden Unternehmen im Bereich der
Wärmebehandlung metallischer Werkstoffe,"
you will see that plasma nitriding is just one of many processes they offer to their contract customers.

Explanation:
Here are just a few more websites on contract services.

http://www.vacua-therm.co.uk/apps.html

http://www.nationalforge.com/nwht.htm

http://www.mayvl.com/contract1.html

Of course if plasma treatment is the only service your client offers, then that would be the term to use for both Plasmaoberflächenbehandlung and Lohnbehandlung.

Explanation:
Some of the answerers seem to misunderstand the word 'Behandlung'.
Basically it means 'treatment'. I could not find conclusive evidence, that it MUST mean 'plasma treatmeant' even in the context given, but it COULD.
