Cost efficient friction and wear reduction – ANS presents at the Aachen Colloquium Automobile and Engine Technology October 7th, 2015 together with Scania and Gnutti Carlo

Dr Boris Zhmud, ANS’ CTO, is going to present “In-Manufacture Running-In of Valve Train Components by Using the Triboconditioning® Process” together with PhD Lars Hammerström, Scania R&D, and Johan Mohlin, R&D Manager at Gnutti Carlo, at the Aachen Colloquium Automobile and Engine Technology on Tuesday, October 6th.

The presentation will cover results from treatment of Scania’s cam follower rollers. Both rig tests and engine tests have proven that the ANS Triboconditioning® is a viable and cost efficient solution for valvetrain components in heavy duty diesel engines. The pilot production tests have confirmed overall technological robustness of the Triboconditioning® technology, characterized by short cycle times, stable process operation and product quality.

you are also welcome to meet us at our poster presentation during the Werkstoffwoche Dresden, September 14th – 17th!



Fuel Economy in Focus – ANS Triboconditioning® enables the use of low-viscosity oils, presentation at the 2015 European Base Oils & Lubricants Summit September 17th, 2015

The use of low-viscosity motor oils has a great impact on fuel efficiency, but increases the risk of wear and surface damage in the engine. The ANS Triboconditioning® helps protecting treated parts thus reducing such risks, making it possible to use modern low-viscosity oils.

A presentation on this topic will be held at the 2015 European Base Oils & Lubricants Summit by CTO Dr Boris Zhmud.

Please join us at the conference to learn more. Welcome!


Monitoring of the Triboconditioning® process by Acoustic Emission – ANS presents at the Tribology Days 2015, Nynäshamn, October 7-8th, 2015

ANS will speak at the annual Tribology Days which this year will be held in Nyköping on the 7-8th October 2015. The topic will be process monitoring of Triboconditioning® process by using Acoustic Emission (AE). This has been a part of the Swedish government sponsored FFI-project together with Luleå University of Technology. The Tribology Days is one of Sweden’s main conferences within the field of tribology and is always organized together with an industry partner. The host for this year’s event is Nynas AB (see www.nynas.com).
