Minimising the friction coefficient and the slip-stick effect for higher velocities and better low-friction properties.

Good low-friction properties as well as the reduction of friction and the avoidance of the slip-stick effect are the prerequisites for many successful applications. Guides of machine parts, areas and profiles of feed units or feeding machines benefit from these properties. However, low friction also plays an important role in the pharmaceutical industry or in the plastic-processing industry. The avoidance of friction not only clearly reduces the maintenance efforts but also considerably improves the product quality.

Improving low friction by means of a functional layer

Special surface topographies and layer systems with stored solid lubricants improve the low-friction properties of the surface.
