For two components in contact, reversible or irreversible slip movements can occur.
For reversible (i.e. returning to their point of origin) micro movements (slippage) usually the surface wear is in the foreground.
If the wear becomes too large, a loss of contact pressure and thus a failure of the connection can occur. With the unique combination
of standardized wear measurements and realistic contact simulations, Maiwald Engineering offers the possibility to detect
wear-critical contacts and to determine appropriate remedial measures. Due to the chosen approach, we do not need any tests
on the real component for the determination of the operating life wear. Thus, the appraisal of the contact behaviour is already possible
in the design phase of your application!
