LF GmbH & Co. KG develops tailor-made compounding solutions for you in a wide variety of areas of the friction lining industry. From brainstorming and compounding to the commissioning of complete systems, we are your reliable partner. Our core competencies lie in the development of liquid friction compounds - for clutches and brake linings, for example.
We have the expertise to optimize products specifically for the manufacturing processes during the development stage. The intelligent use of all resources enables us to break new ground and expand the limits of what is feasible. By combining the new LIQFRIC® technology with established solutions, we create sustainable and economical solutions for our customers over the long term.
The current status quo in the friction industry has been successfully developed over many decades. We identify with the topics of sustainability, zero CO2, electromobility, sensor technology and autonomous driving, which will also change the approach of friction material manufacturing.
With our LIQFRIC® concept, we are setting new standards in terms of reducing CO2 in the manufacturing process, increasing the critical temperature for fine particle emissions and integrating sensors in brake linings, in line with Industry 4.0.
Our "Future of Friction" hexagon describes the areas of tension, but also our solution approaches in the best possible way.
Many process conditions have a decisive influence on the development times of new products, the production costs of prototypes, the minimum lot size and thus on the total costs of friction technology products. This is where the LIQFRIC®product concept comes in. It is intended to be used in the automotive, industrial, rail and prototypes sectors over the long term. Particularly for prototype construction, the product, thanks to its freedom of design, shows excellent starting conditions for disruptive manufacturing approaches as well as the possibility of utilizing batch size 1 to realize cost advantages in an unprecedented size.
Our offers range from the provision of prototype tools for the die casting of LIQFRIC® compounds based on your DXF- or CAD files to the first prototypes for your own comparative testing. Because of our own resources in our fab lab, we can manufacture these tools and prototypes within a short period of time. In the best case within 100 hours, normally in 3 - 4 weeks, provided all information, drawings, the required backing plates and, if requested, sensors are available. Our prices are competitive.
Thanks to the prototypes that have already been produced, we have been able to gain experience in various application areas.
We offer prototypes for:
