 Project objective

​Worldwide about 100 million terajoules, one fifth of the total energy produced, is used each year to overcome friction. The largest quantities of energy are used by industry (29%) and in transportation (27%). As much as 17.5% of the energy used in road transports can be reduced by effective implementation of new tribological solutions. This equals to annual energy savings of 11.6 exajoules, fuel savings of 330 billion litres and reductions in CO2 emissions by 860 million tonnes. Triboconditioning® is a cost- effective mechanochemical surface treatment that reduces friction and wear by up to 80% and 90% respectively. The genius of Triboconditioning is its simplicity, being easily implemented in standard CNC machines, combining both surface finishing and coating in one step. Triboconditioning is a flexible process that can be applied on both industrial and automotive components. More than 50 automotive components per vehicle can benefit from Triboconditioning including geared electric drive. Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS), is headquartered in Sweden with sales offices in Germany, Czech Republic and in North America. The company’s core competences lie in tribology, industrial engineering, product- and business development as well as marketing and sales. By today, ANS has grown to a strong position, working in over 70 ongoing customer programs with corporate giants in the automotive and general industry, both OEMs and Tier1s. Major global automotive firms (Tier 1s and OEMs) are already involved in the development of this technology. Several of them have manifested their interest in participating in the testing procedures of this project. With prototypes that completed technology verification in industrial conditions Technology Readiness Level lies at 7. We aim at piloting Triboconditioning® for final process optimization and industrialization to establish final license agreements and start having revenues by 2020. Results will be quickly transferred across sectors.
