Here is an example of a conrod treatment with our technology Triboconditioning® RS performed in a VMC. The treatment of the conrod shows a very good improvement of the general surface roughness, Ra, but improves the “peak height”, Rpk, even more, see image below.
Triboconditioning® RS brings performance benefits especially for components in conformal contact in a lubricated environment, where optimized plateau surface profile together with the low friction anti-wear tribofilm gives long term improvements when it comes to friction and wear.
