Small bores

Introducing start-stop techniques to heavy duty applications has increased the demands on improving the tribological performance of valve train components.

These demands can be addressed by Triboconditioning of cam follower rollers as it improves bearing capacity of the contacting surface and improves lubricant film strength resulting in lower frictional losses, especially at low sliding speeds. Results from rig tests has shown frictional torque of treated rollers is only 1/3 of the reference. Triboconditioning is of cam follower rollers results in lower cost compared to DLC coatings and bronze pins/bushings, delivers a lead free solution with lower frictional losses.
