For companies that presses thin sheet metal and that has high requirements of surface finish is tribotextil™ a product that provides scratch free material unlike when pressing with lubricants.
Since there is no need for the use of lubricants or subsequent washing processes when using Tribotextile the environmental impact is reduced. The absence of lubricants also increases the possibilities for pressing products within the food and medical industries.
Tribotextile reduces the production costs by reducing the number of process tasks required. Grinding and polishing scratches of the pressed goods is no longer required and the technology decreases the demands on the tools surfaces combined with the lifespan of the pressing tools increasing
When Tribotextil™ is used there is unlike current technology with lubricants no scratches/damages on the pressed material. Tests have also been made on pre-laquered sheet metal without any damages. Therefore Tribotextile is perfect when requiring very high quality and surface finish.
About the press technology with Tribotextil™
We're offering a new patented press technology, developed in a many year long research and development project, for demanding stretch forming/deep drawing of sheet metal. The press technology revolves around a new textile material, Tribotextil™, that is very thin, exceptionally strong and that can replace lubricants. The textile material takes the shape of the tool during the first press and can then be used for a number of presses, depending on the difficulity. The advantages are high quality, more environmentally friendly and lower tool/production costs. We have performed difficult deepdrawings in dry or pre-lacquered sheet metal without recieving any surface damage. Postprocessing is not required of stainless steel sheets. Another advantage with the new technology is that the tools no longer needs polishing.
Fewer work tasks
Lower production costs

We offer interested companies a collaboration to solve problems or improve the properties of composite-based products with our product Tribo™textil. During the spring we have carried out successful tests using our product Tribotextil™ as reinforcement in the manufacture of composites. We can use Tribotextile™ together with carbon fiber and/or fiberglass. A composite with Tribo textile™ gets better reaw fill, better surface finish, higher impact toughness, tougher breakage and withstands large bends. Compared to fiberglass, it[…]
