    Hmmm - interesting. Seems like a mechanism for applying a dry film lubricant. Wondering what advantages this has vs more traditional bake-on styles


    Seems like it could be done more quickly on a production line.

    I don't Know if the two are even comparable in terms of yield? But the newer tech is a great improvement; in that it seems it's performed in-process and not as a secondary / separate operation. Yup, time & motion = money.

    Looked secondary to me.
    Looks like you take the item to have triboconditioned and apply pressure to the surface to be treated while adding the magic fluid.
    The part gets the chemical burnished into it.

    I feel it would be very time consuming to do that on cam lobes.
