Our common path towards a better world

We can help whenever friction and wear are of economic significance.

Everyone knows the squeaking sound of a bicycle chain or that their hands become warm when rubbed against each other. Some are even familiar with the dreaded phenomenon called piston seizure. These are only a few of the many examples of tribological applications from everyday life. We know that it is indispensable to deal with friction and wear (tribology) in order to achieve sustainability, climate neutrality and energy efficiency goals, especially from an ecological and economic point of view. Learn more about this topic, e.g. by taking a look at the studies of the Gesellschaft für Tribologie e.V. (German Tribology Association).

Mobility

Engines and their components are exposed to extreme conditions. Potential for optimisation, so that propulsion does not result in friction loss, can be found here.
