Truck-Lite Partners with NanoMech Industries
FALCONER, N.Y. (February 2017) – Truck-Lite Co., LLC, a worldwide leader in heavy-duty lighting, wire harness and visibility systems, has announced its exclusive partnership with NanoMech Industries, a world leader in nanotechnology innovation. According to NanoMech, their nanomanufacturing processes take advantage of the novel properties of nano-scale materials (down to one billionth of a meter) to produce products that provide higher performance in many areas, including lubricants, dielectric materials, corrosion protection and other innovative compounds. Repeatable, reproducible and reliable nanomanufacturing processes are at the heart of NanoMech’s next-generation product innovations.
The basis for this innovation is NanoMech’s patented and patents-pending nGlide® platform technologies. nGlide nano-engineered formulations eradicate corrosion, provide enhanced barriers to moisture, dielectric protection and water washout resistance and reduce friction by orders of magnitude over traditional commodity products. This innovation so dramatically outperforms conventional and nano-particle based technologies that nGlide-based products virtually render all others obsolete.
Through its long-term partnership with NanoMech, Truck-Lite will introduce an exciting new series of Nano™ line products, specially designed to provide a vastly improved level of performance-increasing resistance to electrical malfunction, corrosion and oxidation. Both Truck-Lite and NanoMech are vigilant and keenly aware of the significant threat that electrical system corrosion poses to the medium and heavy-duty trucking industries globally.
“Truck-Lite understands that the desire of the fleet is to find products that can last the life of the vehicle, and Truck-Lite’s new Nano product family moves us a giant step closer to achieving that goal,” said Brad Van Riper, senior vice president and chief technology officer of Truck-Lite. “Our agreement with NanoMech will allow us to offer a superior level and customer-focused product line to the industry.”
“We have dramatically improved the field of multi-functional protection, and our dielectric protection products have been tested and approved by the largest truck fleets and OEMs in the industry,” said Dr. Ajay P. Malshe, NanoMech founder and CTO. “Nanoengineered materials provide unique material behavior, clinging to even the smoothest surfaces with a long-lasting electrical protective coating at the nanoscale. No other product can protect electrical interfaces to the nano-level like this technology; it stands up to the most extreme and harshest operating conditions and is perfect for the widest range of electric connections and interfaces, including LED lighting, batteries, harnesses and many more.”
“Our solutions are made possible by a powerful mechanical systems lens through which we view both present needs and future opportunities,” added James M. Phillips, NanoMech chairman and CEO. “NanoMech aims to revolutionize trucking performance, efficiency and sustainability. Our goal is to always out-science everyone else while working closely with industry leaders such as Truck-Lite.”
NanoMech, an ISO 9001:2015 certified organization, is focused on patented platform nanomanufacturing technologies that offer a broad range of high value market opportunities. The operating vision of NanoMech is to be the highest quality world leader in nanomanufacturing innovation with swift product development and an emphasis on platform technologies that are scalable for efficient mass production. The company’s products have applications in high-level energy manufacturing, machining, lubrication, highly durable and sustainable protective multi-functional coatings for metals and textiles, as well as consumer products, oil and gas, marine, racing, heavy-duty trucking, automotive, aerospace, electronic vehicles and strategic military applications.
Truck-Lite Co., LLC is headquartered in Falconer, New York, with additional U.S. manufacturing facilities in Wellsboro, Coudersport and McElhattan, Pennsylvania; Saline, Michigan; Gilbert, Arizona; and Nashville, Tennessee, with international facilities in Harlow and Birmingham England; Puebla, Mexico; and Eisenach, Germany. Truck-Lite is a major producer of safety lighting, forward lighting, wiring harnesses, mirrors, turn signal switches and safety accessories to the heavy-duty truck, trailer and commercial vehicle industries.
