Dynamometer and test facilities

Besides our own standard tests procedures we test materials according to customer specifications

For the determination of the friction coefficient we take advantage our test facilities which include a drum-, ring- and disc-test bench. Besides our standard test procedures (a series of tests with differing speed and pressure conditions) we carry out customer specific test programs. By doing that, the friction liners and friction rings can be tested and analysed under conditions very similar to customer applicatition coditions. With the resulting set of test results we are able to evaluate and selct the best possible friction material.

As well, we check the no less important mechanical friction material properties using a ZwickRöll universal materials testing machine. Again, tests according customer test procedures and specification can be done in addition to our standard test procedures.
