Nano-Robotics in Auto Repair

Tags: , , , ,

Nanorobotics involves employing nanotechnology to construct robots at the nanoscale, which enable them to perform tasks that would be impossible with macro-scale robots.

Doctors in Montreal have used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to locate, track and maneuver a nanorobot. Additionally, they utilize systems without tethers, such as ultrasonic signals or magnetic fields to do this task.

Precision Maintenance at Microscopic Levels

Nano robots offer an appealing idea for repairs or replacement of components in your car, but their technical complexity makes implementation challenging on a larger scale.

Nano robotics is an interdisciplinary field combining nanotechnology with materials science and robotics to develop machines on a microscopic scale known as “nanites or nanomites.” They can be customized for various tasks within human biology as well as other fields.

Nano robots are composed of nanoscale sensors, control systems and actuators. Sensors detect specific signals or conditions and send that information to the control system, which then decides on an appropriate action and allocates actuators accordingly. Scientists studying microrobots have taken inspiration from microscopic organisms for creating unique propulsion mechanisms – for instance paramecium move through their environment using tiny tail-like appendages called cilia which they vibrate to propel themselves in any direction.

The TriboTEX Solution

TriboTEX goes beyond simply reducing friction; instead it replaces worn away material due to wear and tear. A proprietary coating applied directly to engine components adheres to pits and grooves in order to fill them, with heat and pressure from your engine then sealing nanoparticles into place for an improved surface that’s even smoother than its original version.

TriboTEX’s smart, protective coating lasts thousands of miles without wear-and-tear damage to motor oil systems. TriboTEX is non-toxic, safe, and easy to use; just add it directly into your oil.

Washington State University PhD Pavlo Rudenko received a NASA Space Grant Fellowship to explore this innovative application of nanotechnology. He developed a prototype that reverses engine and transmission wear in vehicles, turning them into more reliable machines. As customers suggested applications for his technology, Rudenko tailored it for different kinds of vehicles; his company now offers products formulated for small engines found on motorcycles, lawn mowers, generators as well as large, high-performance engines found in sports cars and diesel trucks as well as semi-tractor trailers.

The TriboTEX Advantage

friction damage caused by metal parts grinding together is an unavoidable part of life for engines, even with regular maintenance. While lubricants can help reduce and postpone this damage, they cannot repair it; that is where TriboTEX comes into play.

TriboTEX LLC in Colfax, Washington offers an oil additive designed to fill in pits and grooves caused by friction, before bonding to those surfaces under high heat and pressure – creating stronger coatings which often outperform original metal parts.

TriboTEX works by repairing worn metal and reversing wear, keeping engine parts such as piston rings (pictured) looking and performing like new. Furthermore, TriboTEX extends transmission or gearbox lifespan by keeping costly new replacements away. Plus it’s safe and non-toxic; one regular application treats 3-8 quarts of oil; plus there is even a high performance version suitable for sports cars and diesel trucks while “big rig” formula works on semi-tractor trailer engines!

The TriboTEX Challenge

This company’s products address friction-causing metal parts directly at their source, such as engines, transmissions and other components. Once applied they self-assemble into a diamond-like coating that reduces wear. Tests conducted using smart nanotechnology have demonstrated increased engine power and gas mileage improvements as well as an increase of horsepower by 3 percent when tested in cars.

Rudenko’s invention falls within the field of tribology–the study of friction, lubrication and wear. His creation has been validated by various scientists worldwide including those at the University of Washington who conducted one of the most renowned Four-Ball Wear Tests involving four 1/2 inch ball bearings coated in lubricant that are rotated together at high speeds under pressure for several hours to assess whether its ability to reduce wear is effective by looking at scars left on them after rotating together at high speed under pressure – leaving scarring as evidence of an effective lubricant!

TriboTEX products are currently used in small engines like motorcycles, lawnmowers and generators, while its larger-engined version works great in diesel trucks and sports cars. A national commercial trucking company now uses TriboTEX on all its semi-tractor trailer fleet.
