Quality is key.

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.

An electric drive innovation.

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.

Our awarded technology.

Taking First Place in WRG’s Innovation Competition 2020: flucon’s EPSILON+.

We received good news from the city of Göttingen: flucon won first place in this year’s Innovation Award of the district.

During an online event, District Administrator Bernhard Reuter presented us with the award for our newly developed EPSILON+ laboratory device.

Testing the giant.

Custom built Oil Aeration Machine for high flow rates.

In the opulent shape of an extra-large version of the FOAM Flucon Oil Aeration Machine, our aeration technology is taking on new dimensions. The mobile equipment was modified according to the specific requirements of a southern European customer, and even with individual structure it impresses by reproducibility, functionality and a finely tuned gas concentration (CG) control.
