Falex Experience and Expertise
In June 1999, Falex Corporation and the Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven jointly established a European tribology laboratory in Leuven, Belgium.
Falex Corporation, located near Chicago, USA is the market-leader in the development and manufacturing of standard tribology and petroleum test equipment. With more than 75 years of experience and constant development in the field, Falex Corporation invests in state-of-the art tribological test equipment, most of them backed up by ASTM and other international standards.
The Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven has a long experience in tribological research. Under the direction of Prof. Jean-Pierre Celis, the Surface Engineering Group has built up experience in the material aspects of dry friction and wear. Especially the behaviour of surface coatings and tribo-chemistry are studied.
The Falex Tribology NV laboratory was established to consolidate the marketing and service efforts of the Falex Corporation in Europe and to increase the value of their equipment by research projects. The nearby location of the laboratory ensures that the Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven has easy access to a wide range of test equipment.
