DID YOU KNOW that we’re also testing ? You may know Falex Tribology in Rotselaar, Belgium as your European sales and technical support centre for Falex products. But did you know that we’re also providing testing services, as well as other test equipment ? When you need a tribology test that’s not available in your lab, why not check our list of standard test methods, or contact us with your question ? Chances are, that we can perform your friction and wear tests at a reasonable cost and delivery time.

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

By installing a
Nanofocus Confocal Microscope, we now have the capacity to measure with high precision 3-dimensional wear tracks and 2D-3D roughness on a wide range of test materials. This dramatically expands our capacity to measure the often low wear rates that we encounter in realistic industrial wear simulations. We also make this technology available as a contract measurement service, independent of friction and wear projects. 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
