The automotive industry's wearing part requirements concerning lifetime and quality are increasing steadily. To investigate rotational parts, such as brakes and clutches under different load conditions, InfraTec GmbH has developed an IR-rotation test system. The 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.
