Welcome to TribSys.com
TribSys has a unique position in North America as a leader in the tribology of metalforming.
 
Tribology is the study of friction, lubrication, and wear. As it relates to metalforming, tribology is a key factor in obtaining consistent part geometry and surface quality as well as determining die life and stamping press efficiency.
 
In the past decade tribology has moved into the forefront particularly in the automotive industry where the move to lighter, stronger, corrosion resistant autos has led to the utilization of more difficult to form aluminum, high strength steels and zinc-coated steel.
 
In addition, many new metalforming processes such as sheet and tube hydroforming are more tribologically sensitive than traditional metalforming.
 
TribSys has developed specialized products and services that have been proven to reduce costs, increase die life and improve part quality for its clients.
 
Our Vision
 
TribSys Inc. will use its expertise in tribology and process control to provide the metalforming industry with excellence in process monitoring and control to achieve improved process capability, improved yields and reduced costs. This will be achieved by bringing the laboratory to the shop floor using rigorous research methods and extensive process understanding.
 
TribSys applies a novel tribological approach to process control by relating the influence of tooling, workpiece and lubricant to the metalforming process.
 
The TribSys approach involves integration of tribological and computer control solutions to improve process capability and to increase tool life while reducing the dependence on environmentally harmful lubricants.
 
TribSys focuses primarily on tribology-intensive metalforming processes such as deep drawing, tube bending, tube and sheet hydroforming, and piercing/blanking. These processes are prevalent in the manufacturing of goods for automotive components and consumer goods.
