Brake Pad & Shoe Pressure Distribution Measurement
Product Announcement from Tekscan, Inc.
The I-Scan® system is a versatile research and development tool for brake system and friction plate manufacturers.
Reducing brake noise, vibration and harshness are just some of the challenges facing brake design engineers. The I-Scan system enables designers to measure pressure distribution between mating surfaces and provides the diagnostic tools necessary to measure, view and evaluate dynamic forces acting between a brake pad and rotor or brake shoe and drum.
I-Scan is a valuable tool for studying pressure distribution and provides information on the effectiveness of brake pad, piston, rotor and caliper designs. This technology is also helpful in similar applications, such as aircraft, train brake and transmission friction plate design.
