Together, we are looking forward to unlocking the great potential of our technologies.
We at Applied Nano Surfaces had a fun and exciting week at the PRI show where we were exhibiting with our great partner Sunnen.
We are pleased by the great response we recieved and would like to thank everyone who came to visit the stand making the exhibiton a success!
ANS’ has been awarded the Horizon 2020 SME phase 2 grant for its Triboconditioning® technology, the market leading surface treatment for friction and wear reduction. In total, ANS will receive 1,7 M€ in grants over two years for the industrialization of the Triboconditioning® technology. The program will be a strong support to bring Triboconditioning® in full scale manufacturing for key applications such as gears, cylinder liners and crankshafts.
ANS, for the first time will be displaying at IMTS, the premier manufacturing technology show in the Northern Hemisphere. Our latest cutting edge friction and wear reduction surface treatments Triboconditioning®, TriboNite®, and Tricolit® will be on display.
Visit our booth 122011 in the East Hall of McCormack place and learn how the wide range of treatments and material solutions developed by ANS can add value to your manufactured products.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Chicago.
We are recruiting a Production Engineer and a Development Engineer
To support our development work within customer programs and the ongoing technology commissioning activities, we are seeking to hire an Experienced Production Engineer and a Development Engineer to our office in Uppsala, Sweden.
If you want to work in a dynamic and dedicated team, with front-line technology development, together with global leaders in the industry, to shape our industrial processes that minimize friction and wear, then this is your opportunity!
Experienced Production Engineer
For the Production Engineering position, we are looking for candidates that have a production engineering background with a solid experience in CNC machining and hardware, as well as related QA aspects, with a focus on new technology adoption. You should be able to identify and freely communicate technical issues with peer engineers internally and externally and provide customized solutions when necessary.
Development Engineer Material science/Engineering
For the Development Engineer position, we are looking for candidates with a material science and/or engineering background (MSc/BSc) that could actively support the development of our unique technologies together with our customers. Primary work will be to manage customer development projects, work with process development and industrialization as well as process quality control systems.

We are happy to announce the appointment of Magnus Lundblad as new Chairman of ANS’ Board of Directors. Magnus will bring profound experience in market development and strategic expansion in the industrial and automotive sector given his background as senior manager within marketing, sales and business development at companies such as Ericsson, Citat Group, Vicura and EVRY. Currently, Magnus holds the position as CEO of AVL Vicura AB and has over the years also served as a Board of Director in more than 15 different companies.
ANS would also like to thank Per Kågebjer, the former Chairman of the Board of Directors, for his dedicated work and great contribution to the success of building ANS to the current strong position. As co-founder, Per Kågebjer has been integral in taking the company from a start-up to a successful expanding business within the surface treatment market.
ANS will exhibit at the Hannover Messe April 23-27 in hall 004, stand E40. Come and talk to us over some freshly brewed coffee and baked cinnamon buns.
We will showcase our latest developments within our three core technologies for friction and wear reduction: Triboconditioning®, TriboNite® and Tricolit®.
Looking forward to seeing you in Hannover!
The Hannover Messe is the world’s leading trade show for industrial technology with more than 5000 exhibitors from more than 75 countries.

On 8 November 2017, the European Commission presented a legislative proposal setting new CO2 emission standards for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (vans) in the European Union for the period after 2020.
The proposed targets are set for the EU-wide average emissions of new cars and vans in a given calendar year from 2025 on, with stricter targets applying from 2030.
The proposal also includes a mechanism to incentivize the uptake of zero- and low-emission vehicles, in a technology-neutral way.
The proposed framework builds on the current Regulations setting CO2 emission standards for cars and vans which will be repealed on 1 January 2020.
Average emissions of the EU fleet of new cars in 2030 will have to be 30% lower than in 2021. For the EU fleet of new vans in 2030, the reduction also amounts to 30%.
For 2025, targets for cars and vans are 15% lower than in 2021, so as to ensure that emission reductions occur as early as possible.
In order to provide for the transition from the current to the future framework, the proposal also includes the already established EU fleet wide targets for 2020/2021 of 95 g CO2/km for passenger cars and 147 g CO2/km for light commercial vehicles, both of which are based on the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) test procedure.
Starting from 2021, the emission targets will be based on the new emissions test procedure, the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), which was introduced on 1 September 2017.“

ANS, as a provider of technologies to reduce friction, e.g. for internal combustion engines, transmissions and drivelines, and can help OEM’s and the parts manufacturers to achieve these ambitious targets.
ANS is exhibiting at the 6th ATZ conference on tribology – meet us to learn more
“Friction Minimization in the Powertrain 2017”, see
The technologies such as Triboconditioning®, TriboNite® and Tricolit® help engineers to achieve the tight requirements to minimize fuel consumption of vehicles by reducing friction losses, which provide the biggest leverage effect compared to other strategies like weight reduction or hybridization. Approaching tribology as a system, ANS technologies are also an enabler to make best use of other measures like introduction of low viscosity oils both in engines and gearboxes. We would like to welcome you on our booth at the accompanying exhibition to the conference.
Applied Nano Surfaces will present TriboNite® during the annual Tribodays at Vattenfall R&D AB November 28-29 in Älvkarleby, Sweden.
ANS are pleased to announce that Johan Blomkvist together with Fredrik Lindberg, Ovako, will present an advanced thermal processing and coating technology for enhanced friction and wear behaviour applied on a new type of hybrid steel with unique in-process mechanical strengthening properties at the conference.
In a joint cooperation between ANS, Ovako and Bodycote, the TriboNite® process has been tested using a new type of hybrid steel from Ovako as substrate material. The tests have revealed unique in-process mechanical strengthening properties in combination with superior friction and wear behaviour compared to nitrided equivalents.
The Tribodays are held every autumn and bring together people from industry, institutes and academia who have interest in tribology and tribology R&D. Meet us at the Tribodays and learn more about TriboNite® and how the technology can be beneficial in your application.
