Contract Research

Experienced + Competent + Independent + Reliable


Competence Center Tribology Mannheim

The institute is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001.

The institute has been providing tribological services since 1995.
All employees in contract research are mechanical engineers and have many years of tribological experience. With the know-how we have gained from a wide range of contract and research work, we will be happy to assist you in preparing and carrying out your individual tribological tests.

Our employees are involved in numerous national and international standardization and technical committees. The knowledge acquired here flows directly into testing practice. Likewise, our know-how in the standard-compliant implementation of test specifications is secured through our participation in the committees of DIN, VDI, ASTM, DGM and the Society for Tribology (GfT) and made accessible to a wide audience at specialist conferences.

We guarantee strict independence from the client and other companies for all tests carried out in our company. The standard-compliant execution of the tests and the objective scientific evaluation of the results are the benchmark of our work. You can always rest assured that your data will be treated with strict confidentiality.

A confidentiality agreement is therefore a matter of course. Only at your request will we make representations to third parties in order to arrive at an optimal solution to your concern. This is also a strength of the competence center: excellent contacts to all common lubricant, additive and bearing manufacturers, coating companies as well as to experienced tribologists from practice and other research institutes.

One of our strong qualities is the ability to listen well to you and your team. We find out the important and essential information about your project to achieve the common goal – an optimal solution.
