Material & Service Life Tests

The occurrence of stick-slip phenomena when using certain materials can be attributed either to incompatible material combinations or to the influence of third substances. With the SSP-04 and H3P stick-slip test stand, ZIEGLER -Instruments can predict possible stick-slip effects and the associated squeak problems.

Stick-slip measurements provide indications of critical material combinations and the influence of third substances which reduce the objective quality of the product through abrasion and wear. In addition, these effects also reduce the subjective quality of a product due to unwanted noises.
