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.
