Determination of the shear strength of brake linings
Universal testing machine Inspekt table 250 kN
- Industry: Automotive industry
With this special version of the Inspekt table 250 kN universal testing machine, brake linings can be tested for shear strength. For this purpose, this testing machine was equipped with a shearing device, a hydraulic unit and an industrial safety door.
The brake lining is inserted into the specially designed shearing machine with shearing blade. It is measured at which force application the adhesive bond of the brake lining breaks.
In this way, the mechanical properties of brake pad bonding can be evaluated and valuable information for quality control of current production and for research and development can be determined.
