ANS triboconditioning: in-manufacture running-in process for improving tribological properties of mechanical parts made of steel or cast iron
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Component rig tests suggest that ANS triboconditioning brings significant improvements in the tribological properties of camshafts, cylinder liners, and rocker arm shafts. Extreme-pressure mechanical treatment of the component surface in combination with a tribochemical deposition of a low-friction antiwear film based on tungsten disulfide allows one to produce, in a single finishing operation, a smoother surface with a significantly reduced coefficient of boundary friction and improved wear-resistance and load-carrying capacity. The treatment proved to be especially efficient for reducing friction and wear in lubricated contacts under high tribological stress.
