As manufacturers of wearing parts for the soil tillage industry, AMAZONE can look back on a history spanning decades. Continuous advancements in materials and production techniques, as well as our know-how in heat treatment, lies behind the plough wearing metal parts of the highest quality.

Carbon in its purest form, diamond, is the hardest material nature has to offer. A hardening process involving the introduction of carbon into the steel is used to increase the hardness and durability of ©plus wear parts. AMAZONE achieves, through this unique hardening process, an extremely high level of hardness on the face of parts such as mouldboards and so offers the optimum wear resistance. The reverse side remains relatively soft but at the same time extremely tough and impact resistant.


Benefits of the ©plus hardening process:

Longer service life
High impact resistance
Less pulling power requirement
Reduced fuel consumption
Less sticking to the smoother outer surface


  1. Hardened front of mouldboard
  2. Relatively soft rear of mouldboard
