Advanced surface treatments for friction and wear reduction
At Tribonex we believe that energy efficiency and component life are key for achieving sustainable solutions. Our offerings for friction and wear reduction presents superior cost-benefit, are easy to implement and well suited for industrial application using standard machines and process equipment.
Our experienced team, with deep knowledge in tribology, helps our customers to apply the right solution and optimize their components’ surfaces for improved friction and wear performance.
Using our own machine shop as well as through close collaboration with our dedicated machine and tooling partners, we outline and verify an efficient production solution for applying our surface treatments on our customers’ products.
Based on our customers’ requirements, we implement the surface treatment solution for series production either by treatment at our plant or at one of our select treatment partners or through implementation at our customers’ production plants.
Five-fold (80%) reduction in bearing wear for a leading car manufacturer
Treatment of crankshaft journals using Triboconditioning® RS has allowed to reduce the critical bearing wear experienced from low viscosity motor oils. Also, the solution improves engine efficiency at low engine speeds common for stop-and-go city traffic.
Reduced friction and wear of high-speed gears in e-mobility application – 30,000 rpm
Application of Triboconditioning® CG on high-speed helical gears used in an e-axle design helped a leading powertrain engineering company to address problems with overheating and achieve sustainable transmission operation at 30,000 rpm.
