By reducing wear and friction, the Triboconditioning process improves surface finish, prevents seizures, and enhances product life. The combined mechano-chemical surface treatment method uses a machining procedure to level off surface peaks and apply a friction- and wear-reducing compound to the component’s surface. Unlike spray coatings, the compound becomes an integrated part of the component structure at a nano level. The process is mechanically simple and, in most cases, can be done with Sunnen precision honing equipment. Designed for cost-efficiency in mass production environments, it suits in-house manufacturing.
Key applications include automotive engine components such as valve train parts, cylinder liners, crankshafts, and connecting rods, as well as industrial applications such as hydraulic motors, rock drills, pumps, chains, gears, and compressors.
