The automotive industry's wearing part requirements concerning lifetime and quality are increasing steadily. To analyse fast rotational parts, such as brakes, tyres and clutches under different load conditions, InfraTec has developed an IR-rotation test system – Thermal Rotate Check (TRC). This can be used, for example, as a brake test bench or as a tyre test bench.
The respective test object will be sampled at sample rates which range up to the kilohertz band. Data acquisition will be triggered automatically by the testing machine. Various transformations can be done to display and archive the thermographic data. The thermography evaluation software IRBIS® 3 rotate is available to analyse the acquired data. According to requirements, integrators can also integrate the entire system into existing production environments.
