Our History

Tribonex takes its origin from research carried out at Uppsala University/Ångström Laboratory in the early 2000.


Our company takes its origin from research carried out at Uppsala University/Ångström Laboratory in the early 2000. With this research as a foundation – Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) was formed, the predecessor of Tribonex.


We moved to our own premises and started building a tribology research lab and prototype manufacturing workshop in Uppsala. ANS invented and refined the concept of tribochemical burnishing, which gave birth to the Triboconditioning® process.


Launch of the new machine shop in Uppsala capable of supplying our surface treatments on a series basis to our customers. ANS becomes Tribonex with new investors backing and a focus to build supply services to our customers.


By today, Tribonex has grown to become a leader in the field of mechanochemical surface finishing, serving over 40 clients, including corporate giants in the automotive industry, and we are constantly looking for new expansion areas.
