On July 5 and 6, Bearing World 2022 took place in beautiful Würzburg. Every year, experts from the fields of rolling and plain bearing technology as well as lubricant development come together at the international congress to exchange information on current focal points, innovations and optimization concepts.
This year, Josephine Klingebiel was one of our speakers in Würzburg, reporting on the latest findings from experiments with targeted current damage and bearing shell surface investigations.
In operation since May: 100 kWp photovoltaic system.
Already in spring 2022 a solar plant has been installed at flucon, which could now finally be put into operation.
The southern roofs of our new company headquarters were almost completely covered with PV modules, giving us an output of 100 kWp. The configuration was supplemented by an in-house storage system, which is intended to cover the nightly demand, compensate for yield dips and thus ensure as complete self-sufficiency as possible.
Mr. Jonas Boppert Management Assistant with immediate effect.
In April, another highly qualified newcomer joins the flucon team: Jonas Boppert takes over as Management Assistant.
In close cooperation with Johanna and Simon Hausner, Mr. Boppert will help to keep flucon’s service quality high despite growth, to increase innovation and to position our company for the future with suitable methods and strategies.
Joining our R&D team as flucon’s Head of QA: André Heine.
Today we present a highly qualified new addition to the team. André Heine is 36 years young and will strengthen our R&D in the future with the important focus on quality assurance.
With his extensive knowledge in the areas of CAD construction, sensor technology and test benches, among others, Mr. Heine will take care of all quality-related customer concerns and will manage flucon’s continuous improvement process.
Presenting the all-new “E-Lub Tester” for electric analysis of bearings and lubricants.
Based on previous knowledge of the technology of our EPSILON+ laboratory system, our team has designed a novel measurement and test setup for the four-ball tester (FBT), which can be used to investigate the behavior of electrically loaded rolling bearings.
In addition to the impedance, the E-Lub Tester is to be used to investigate the damaging breakdown currents and, in the future, to enable a statement to be made on the lubrication gap height or the lubrication condition in the bearing under certain load conditions without having to resort to the known model calculations for this purpose.
