As the holiday season approaches, ANS would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  We thank you for your support throughout the year and wish you all a safe and prosperous 2021.

 

In a recent article published in the magazine for industrial design, the new process Triboconditioning® CG for complex geometries is described. ANS achieves unique features of the surface in terms of smoothness as well as chemical and microstructural composition of the utmost material layer. This results is significant reduction of friction and wear and enables an optimization of parts, which are otherwise difficult to treat with Triboconditioning®, e.g. gears, cam lobes or sheet metal stampings.

In einem in der November-Ausgabe 2020 des Magazin für den Konstruktionsingenieur veröffentlichten Artikel wird das neue Verfahren Triboconditioning® CG für komplexe Geometrien beschrieben. ANS erzielt einzigartige Eigenschaften der Oberfläche in Bezug auf die Rauheit sowie die chemische und mikrostrukturelle Zusammensetzung der äußersten Materialschicht. Dies führt zu einer signifikanten Reduzierung von Reibung und Verschleiß und ermöglicht eine Optimierung von Teilen, die sonst nur schwer mittels Triboconditionieren® zu behandeln sind, wie z.B. Zahnräder, Nocken oder Blechstanzteile.

We are pleased to announce that we have started cooperation with CEVT on improving electric vehicle transmissions within the Swedish FFI framework. In this program, ANS will help CEVT to increase efficiency and drive range by applying the new Triboconditioning® CG treatment on gears in order to minimize friction losses as well as maximizing wear resistance. Further, the Triboconditioning® CG treatment also aims at improving the vehicle’s NVH characteristics by reducing annoying noise coming out of the gearbox. The BEV drivers will thus enjoy a nice and silent ride.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In support of its offering for friction reduction and wear resistant surface treatment technologies including Triboconditioning®, Triboconditioning® CG, TriboNite® and Tricolit®, ANS is pleased to announce that Mr David Chobany has been appointed to the position of Technology and Sales Director for the Americas.

Mr. Chobany has over 25 years of substantial hands-on experience and expertise in advanced precision bore finishing and honing technologies designed to produce technical/functional surface structuring and bore geometry/size control. He is a subject matter expert in machining processes relating to precision surface structuring and has authored many technical articles including topics such as, flexible/agile bore finishing on CNC platforms, and engine cylinder bore perfection. As a Senior Member of the SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) Mr. Chobany has presented to many of the world’s leading technical organizations including SME, IMTS, SAE, PMTS and STLE.

He has worked within the global OE and Tier 1 network supporting machining advances in the engine/powertrain, gear, hydraulics, aerospace and energy sectors, among others.  Past experiences include Business Development Manager for Sunnen Products Company, Vice President of Bates Technologies (formerly Micromatic Textron), Deputy CEO of EFI (a critical health and safety composites manufacturer), and Director of Engineered Products for a large electrical distribution agency.

Mr. Chobany will lead the company’s efforts to commercialize ongoing projects, create new business opportunities and establish strategic and developmental partnerships within the Americas region. Offices to support these efforts are strategically located in the Midwest region of the USA.  To learn more of these efforts please contact David Chobany.

The new variant of Triboconditioning®, which has been developed by ANS for the treatment of complex geometries, gains attention in one of the most renowned engineering magazines in Germany, the MTZ – Motortechnische Zeitschrift / Magazine for Engine Technology. It highlights the achievable features like plateau-like surface profile and residual stress together with the proprietary application of reactive fluids, for improved performance of parts like gears in terms of friction, wear and load bearing capability.

ANS are proud to have been chosen one of the 40 best European Hightech Startups at the #HTVD19. Come to Dresden, visit the High Tech Venture days on November 15 to 16 and listen to our CEO, Christian Kolar, presenting ANS and our unique solutions for friction and wear reduction.

Visit us in the Sunnen stand at the EMO fair in Hannover in hall 011, stand D02. We will showcase our latest developments within our technology Triboconditioning® for friction and wear reduction. Come and talk with us to learn more about our technologies and our collaboration together with Sunnen.

Sunnen Products Company and ANS have a joint development program focused on ANS Triboconditioning® process that reduces friction and wear on a variety of honed parts and components.

After intense development work we have finally launched a new treatment system for gears based on our award winning mechano-chemical surface finishing process Triboconditioning®. This opens up a whole range of new applications where we can help reduce friction, wear as well as minimize annoying noise emissions. With our treatment we can combine an optimized surface chemistry with an improved surface finish, also adding compressive stresses for increased durability. Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more!

The big happening of the year, the Hannover Messe, is over. We at Applied Nano Surfaces had a fun and exciting week where we had the opportunity to welcome both old and new friends  to our booth. We are pleased by the great response we recieved and would like to thank everyone who came to visit our stand making the exhibiton a success.
