Tribology and wear testing

Tribology and wear testing infrastructure

Facilities for wear and tribology testing, including heavy abrasion, impact wear, slurry-erosion, fretting and tribology of machine elements, such as gears, bearings, and frictional joints. The equipment is designed and built to simulate the in-service conditions. The facilities cover also vibration monitoring and diagnostics of machine systems.
