DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIALLY RELEVANT NEW TEST METHODS AND PROCEDURES
We are currently developing new industrially relevant test methods and aim to publish these over the coming months.
If you have a current industrial tribology issue that is not well handled by standard test methods, and you have an interest to cooperate on new methods focussed on modern products, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
Falex put their 90 year experience, combined know-how, and 20+ different tribology testers together, to provide the best and most efficient solution for YOUR measurement and quality control question.
We encourage you sending us challenging industrial questions !
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with subject 'application' if you have something in mind.
As of May 2016, the Tetra-Falex MUST microtribometer system will no longer be supported and is replaced by the Tetra Basalt-N2 testing platform which has, among other configurations, a microNewton reciprocating configuration.
This configuration completely replaces and improves the MUST specifications.
A limited offer is given to current users : in return for your MUST test system, you are eligible for a substantial discount on the new test system. Please contact
Dr. Dirk Drees for more information on this. Read more
The Falex Tribology lab, with more than 16 tribometers covering a wide range of ASTM, DIN, ISO and CEC lubricant and material friction and wear tests, is at your service for
customer testing Read more NEW ! Belgian Falex lab acquires a Falex Timken test machine
By acquiring a Timken Extreme Pressure Test Rig, Falex Tribology nv has extended its standard test range available in Belgium with the
ASTM D2509 and D2782 tests.
Read more Hard Chromium alternative EU project succesfully concluded
This month, we have succesfully concluded our current 'Hardalt' European research project on finding alternatives for the standard Hard Chromium coatings.
Some alternatives, specifically Nickel Phosphorous based coatings with nano-particle strengthening, are showing promising results.
Falex have screened a number of these Ni-P-nanocomposites for a real industrial application with our 50-station parallel wear tester and found specifically 4 good alternatives for dry and lubricating sliding.
More information can be found on the project website
http://www.hardalt.eu and or our LinkedIn page
For more information on these promising coatings and our way of validating them for industrial applications, feel free to contact email@example.com !
Falex Tribology nv was present at Materials 2016, on 20 and 21 April 2016, in the special theme area
on Smart Coatings.
We presented our competences and the
TETRA BASALT® N2, our answer to high precision demands of today's tribology and material surface measurements.
Conceived to be modular in manufacturing, this test system can adapt easily to various requirements in surface and coatings testing.
Some application examples of
high precision testing were presented at the stand.
