Software for
higher efficiency

Tribo-X

Tribo-X is a Thermo Elastohydrodynamics (TEHD) simulation software that allows the calculation of the stress, friction and temperature of lubricated systems. With Tribo-X a "numerical magnifying glass" is available, which allows a view into the frictional contact and thus contributes to a better understanding of the processes taking place there. Tribo-X can be used to optimize the friction and wear of lubricated systems to increase product efficiency and shorten product development cycles.
