In our pilot plant in Finsterwalde we are constantly working on innovative new and further developments, such as optimized process technologies, improved screwing and friction coefficients or new test procedures. This enables us to continue to supply our customers with optimum product and manufacturing quality in the future.

Our employees in Germany and Poland have at their disposal all the essential test and inspection procedures required in accordance with the latest industry standards for optimizing new surfaces and ensuring quality in the ongoing production process:

Layer thickness measurements with X-ray spectrometer (Fischerscope, X-Ray)
Salt spray tests according to DIN 50021
Climate change tests according to VDA-621-415
Kesternich tests according to DIN 50018
Abrasion and surface adhesion tests
Friction tests for connecting parts (REC, Schatz)
Fastening and tension tests on connecting parts

In addition, a rapid test for corrosion protection testing of zinc coatings has been developed in recent years, which reduces the execution time and availability of measurement results from over a month to less than an hour compared with the salt spray test used today. This rapid test is used in particular for process-accompanying quality assurance, incoming goods inspection and the development of new surfaces. The project was funded by the Brandenburg Ministry of Economics and the EU (GALFA is responsible for the content).
