An engine does not only have to release power efficiently, it should also do this reliably – for as many years and as many kilometers as possible. Schaeffler Engineering therefore tests the functional, friction and acoustic behavior of engines and engine components.
There are many factors upon which ideal engine performance is depending. Only when all components are working properly the maximum engine power can be supplied.
For this reason, Schaeffler Engineering places a main emphasis on investigations in the area of functional behavior and carries out the following investigations on its test benches:
Dragged or fired investigations on a valve train in order to assess the dynamic behavior of conventional or variable valve trains.
Tests on fired engine test benches, dragged component test benches and a dynamometer for four-wheel drives.

Investigations on specially developed component test benches.
Measurements in low and high temperature ranges on specifically developed component test benches.

When parts are moving there is friction. Of course, this should be kept as low as possible so that the corresponding components work perfectly and for as long as possible.
As a specialist in the field of tribology, we investigate the friction caused by the individual components, calculate and measure the coefficient of friction and wear, test the influence of various coatings, and adjust the calculation method. Thus, we help you to improve a complete system.
On our test benches, we mainly investigate the following:
In addition, we investigate materials in the MTM2 tribometer and test tribologic systems, lubricants, and surfaces.
For investigations of functional behavior, put your trust in a partner from whom nothing escapes: Schaeffler Engineering.
