Research & Development Services
We test the materials and the performance of our products under practical conditions in our technical application laboratory. This serves not only as quality assurance but also provides valuable input for the investigation of problems at the request of our customers.
- 'Four-bearing' test rig VLP 84, designed by Prof. Spiegel, for the examination of grease-lubricated plain bearings.
- 'Eight-column' test rig designed according to the pin-disk principle to study material combinations at low sliding speeds and high surface pressures.
- Testing machine designed according to the crossed-cylinder principle to determine the wear and behaviour of material combinations by discontinuous lubrication and solid-state friction.
