Compressibility Testing

This session will provide an overview of LINK Compressibility Testing. We will cover how much friction material deforms when the driver uses the brake, and if the deformity can contribute to pedal feel. LINK can easily measure the compressibility of the brake lining, and the test is commonly used both during the development of material and for quality control. This presentation will be held in Spanish.

Cuánto se deformará un material de fricción cuando el conductor presione el pedal de freno? Contribuirá la deformación a percibir un frenado esponjoso? La compresibilidad de un material de fricción puede medirse fácilmente, la prueba se usa como control de calidad y también durante el desarrollo. Participe en la sesión donde hablaremos acerca de las pruebas de compresibilidad.

Tescor ECU Operations Overview and Touchscreen

This course will give the owner/operators of a Tescor ECU-2/3 a general overview of the maintenance, mechanics, refrigeration circuit, air flow and touchscreen. The course will touch on the basics of operating and troubleshooting the machine without the need of a refrigeration license or pressure gauges. We will review the basic refrigeration cycle of this machine, air flow pattern and the theory of the duel cooling coil air path, user interface located within the Allen Bradley PanelView touchscreen including the password protected PID objects, and general maintenance requirements.

LINK Brake Emission Technology and the Industry Update

This session will discuss one of the hot topics of pollution monitoring agencies and industry stakeholders – automotive brake emissions. Emissions generated from vehicle braking is foreseen to remain an active topic of interest while the industry is gradually steering towards battery-operated vehicles equipped with regenerative braking systems. We will use the LINK M6330 brake emissions measurement system to review several important aspects while measuring brake emissions in a laboratory setting. We will cover the ABCs of brake emissions, namely airflow, brake enclosure, capture zones, and design recommendations. The LINK M6330 is ISO 17025 certified and is built upon several industry standards such as ISO 9096, EPA Method 1A, and 40 CFR 1065 along with complying several essential recommendations from PMP.

LINK Chase Testing Webinar

This presentation will discuss LINK’s chase testing machine, the purpose of the SAE J661 test, and why it’s useful. Also discussed will be additional tests that can be conducted and how a chase machine can be utilized for much more than J661 testing. This presentation will be in English with Spanish support.

City Traffic Tests on a Dynamometer

Webminar Pruebas de trafico de ciudad en dinamómetro

This session will discuss the most commonly used dynamometer tests for disc brake pads, including the U.S. City Traffic (USCT) test. The USCT test provides results concerning two key aspects: durability and noise. This presentation will be held in Spanish.

En esta sesión hablaremos acerca de las pruebas dinamométricas más comunes para pastillas y balatas, especialmente acerca de la prueba que simula tráfico en ciudad y que produce información de ruido y durabilidad.
