In its drive for innovative solutions to problematic component wear and friction, Applied Nano Surfaces has expanded its North America footprint through a technology development and production partnership with Precision Finishing, Inc.

Uppsala Sweden, November 5, 2021.

Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) has entered a strategic partnership with Precision Finishing Inc., to advance a unique variant of its core Triboconditioning® technology, which is a patented process developed to provide for friction reduction and wear resistance on various steel and cast-iron surfaces. The new variant, known as Triboconditioning® CG (Complex Geometries), is a mechanochemical surface treatment process specifically engineered to address the outer complex geometries of components such as gears. Additional benefits of this treatment include improved surface finish and running in behavior, noise reduction (NVH), minimization and improvement for scuffing, pitting, rolling fatigue resistance as well as extending the product service life.

This partnership brings together the knowledge and expertise of the ANS friction/wear reduction treatment technologies along with the highest-level of mechanical surface finishing processes and functional part optimization from Precision Finishing Inc.

“The synergy and combined expertise of our two companies will effectively service the quickly evolving market that is seeking solutions to enhance component value by increasing life along with minimizing friction, noise and other inherent issues such as pitting and scuffing” said David Chobany, Technology and Sales Director – Americas for Applied Nano Surfaces

The partnership of ANS with Precision Finishing Inc. marks an exciting jumping off point for the North American market. “The group at ANS is wonderful to work with and very knowledgeable. Triboconditioning® CG is an exciting process and it is very synergistic with our business model. We know our customers and partners will be able to leverage this technology to further optimize the functionality of their components.” says Jeffrey Bell, Director of business development & technologies.

Customers to benefit from this technology are varied and include major OEs in automotive and truck powertrains, hydraulics, power generation, racing, gears, and many others that produce rotating/sliding/mating components.


Applied Nano Surfaces is headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden. They are a worldwide leader in the development and support of a unique family of surface treatment technologies to service a broad range of industrial and automotive applications. They offer innovative solutions for friction and wear reduction with technologies that can be integrated into a current manufacturing environment at considerably lower cost than similar treatments.

Precision Finishing is based out of Quakertown Pennsylvania (USA). They are a third-generation family business dedicated to the continuation and innovation of surface finishing technologies since 1955. They are customer centric and live by the statement, “Our Passion is in the Process”. Their expertise is derived from their robust subcontracting programs. They process over 100,000,000+ components a year for all disciplines of manufacturing under their ISO 9001-2015 quality program while conforming to PPAP, MIL, SAE, AMS, and FFL standards. The Precision team also assists hundreds of manufacturers to scale and optimize internal finishing processes through capital equipment acquisition, supplies, service, and maintenance with their team of dedicated Sales Engineers and staff.
