A joint research project has started together with Gnutti Powertrain AB, Scania AB, Högskolan i Halmstad and ANS. The goal of the project is to reduce friction and wear in valve train components for heavy duty diesel engines and to study the implementation of ANS Triboconditioning® into full scale production. The project will be finished by the end of 2014.

A joint research project of ANS, Mahle and Nagel has been started in order to study the effect of ANS Triboconditioning® on the piston ring/cylinder liner tribology in heavy-duty diesel engines. This research proves that Triboconditioning® has potential for significantly reducing ring/liner friction and ring wear.

A technical account of research data accumulated within this project is to be presented at the 3rd International Tribology Symposium of IFToMM in Luleå, Sweden March 19-21, 2013. Read more about it here.
