Why testing... and why with us ?
Why testing : To measure is to know
base decisions on data, not on guesses
tribology data isn't easy to model, physical testing remains necessary
intelligent testing requires understanding of the component conditions and realistic lab simulation
Why with us : Quality, Knowledge and Partner Solutions
Quality (in equipment and procedures) guarantee value for money
We have a wide range of
infrastructure Knowledge translates a real contact to a significant lab test
Partner solutions implies that we vary test programs depending on your deadlines, procedures, needs and budget
YOUR ADVANTAGES IN A NUTSHELL :
SAVE MONEY : standard tests from 180 €
save on capital investment, staff training, maintenance, calibration and updates of equipment
- small to large projects BE FLEXIBLE : our lab is your lab - we adapt the test program during execution by continuous communication - the best test machines, over 20 different instruments, standard testing at a fixed price
BE EFFICIENT : no learning curve and expert advice - competent staff with experience in materials engineering and lubrication technology - tools to handle almost all tribological contract testing on the lab scale - consulting or training, to help you reach the next level of application reliability
Testing News 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

For more information on these promising coatings and our way of validating them for industrial applications, feel free to contact email@example.com !
NEW ! Belgian Falex lab acquires a Miller Number Slurry Abrasivity Test Machine
Falex Tribology nv has added a Miller Number Slurry Abrasion Test Machine to its already extensive tribotester base. We can now perform your ASTM G75 or custom slurry abrasion tests in our lab in Belgium.
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.
More info on the Tetra Basalt N2 Read more We have put in operation the Basalt-N Microtribometer, the Basalt-M multistation precision pin-on-disk tribometer and the Basalt-C Piston Simulator Read more
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
