Bruker has launched their new High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) module for the UMT-Tribolab mechanical tester at the STLE Conference in May.
“T he High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig of the UMT TriboLab has been developed as a precise and consistent technique to evaluate materials and lubricants employed on reciprocating applications, such as engines and compressors,” says Dr. G iovanni Ramirez, Applications Scientist for Bruker Nano Surfaces Benchtop testing with the HFRR Module, ranks the performance of lubricants and surfaces under simulated conditions monitoring small changes in friction under automotive industry stands test conditions, including ASTM D6245.
Bruker’s benchtop UMT TriboLab™ Brake Material Screening Tester is being increasingly used to enable the brake material industry to reduce development cycle times. At Teijin Aramid in the Netherlands, Frank Diedering notes that “Each day, around the world, customers rely on Teijin Aramid for the world-class aramid solutions and support that only we can provide. Among these solutions are the application of aramid pulp in friction paper and brake pads. With the help of the Bruker’s UMT-Tribolab we are now able to test new product developments in end applications and support our customers in their developments”.
