Simulating Brake Testing 

On MFT 5000 Platform

The advent of hybrid and electric cars, regenerative braking and modern safety regulations are key motivations to develop brake friction materials.

The brake material tribometer involves evaluating behavior of a friction material at varying pressures, speeds, temperatures and deceleration conditions. The tester comes with the patented inline profilometer that allows to quantify wear of both brake and rotor surface change vs. number of cycles, speed and loads.
