Applied Nano Surfaces has developed a new and revolutionary method to coat steel and cast iron surfaces with a low friction coating. The application method is very cost efficient and the coatings lowers both friction and wear substantially, friction with up to 60% and wear between 4 and 20 times.
ANS has set a new standard for creating low friction surfaces and is now the market leader in the field of mechanically induced low friction coatings. The uniqueness of the coating process lies in its simplicity. A tool is pressed against the component to be coated where after the low friction coating is formed on the component due to a reaction between the tool, a process fluid and the component.
This straightforward approach means that the coating process can be easily and seamlessly integrated as a last step in todays production process. By exchanging cutting tools and process fluid to the ANS set up, existing equipment for machining components can be used i.e. lathes, turning machines, honing
