Tribology is the study of friction. It is our speciality and in many cases the key to success for our customers. Friction between plastic parts is vital when it comes to the efficiency of escalators, intralogistics systems, centre pivot liners and industrial plants. Success often depends on whether a plastic part sticks or slides, so finding the right balance in terms of friction is essential for reliable operations. Service life and lubricants are also important cost factors. We can identify in advance the material that is best suited to a particular application. Various measuring procedures, coupled with the extensive experience we have gained in the course of endurance testing enable our experts to choose the right materials, as well as calculating the ideal dimensions for components and selecting the optimum interacting surfaces for reliable operations.
