The incompatibility of pairs of material is mostly due to the stick-slip effect. Appropriate test benches help provide information of whether S&R in the later component should be expected.

Many problems and complaints can be traced to squeak and rattle phenomena. The choice of suitable material pairs often avoids such complaints. Other specifications of the different materials prevent another combination so that a different solution is needed.

After over ten years of experience reinforced by numerous research projects, ZIEGLER-Instruments GmbH commands a wealth of know-how of material pairs.

In addition, a database on sale by the name of PEM is helpful in choosing suitable pairs of material.

We have several machines to test material combinations in our material lab. So we can predict stick-slip, life time, abrasion and wear also of pairs of material as service.
