Greeley independent research and development scale test bench

Greeley independent research and development scale test bench

Greeley uses the self-developed 1:5 scaling test bench with environmental control to develop the core of the formula. Because there is no negative influence of calipers and brake discs, compared with the development with full-size bench, this development method provides us with more effective data, stable contact state and stable pressure conditions are more conducive to the optimization of the formula and process, because it has environmental control and some special designs, we can use the scaling test bench to conduct in-depth investigations of some problems, such as stick-slip noise (Creep-Groan) research.
