Interestingly, it wasn’t that long ago that the world was also flat to scientists in the lab testing for friction and wear on mechanical parts.
It was back in the 1960’s, around the advent of color TV’s and tribology itself, when the Ball On Flat test was developed. The methodology is basically just what it sounds like…a ball with varying degrees of downward force sliding back and forth across a flat surface so the level of friction and wear can be observed when using various lubricant formulations. While the Ball on Flat was the best tool available at the time, it provided only a very basic understanding of friction and wear. It left a lot of questions unanswered and required making endless assumptions since this actual tribocouple—or relationship of surfaces—doesn’t actually exist in an engine.
So the exploration continued, which led to ‘Ring on-Bore’ testing. While this new industry concept was limited to static loading, COMPANY expanded its capabilities in the 2000’s, infusing a level of unmatched flexibility into this widespread means of studying the largest source of friction in an engine.
With our augmented Ring on Bore experiments, we are able to study the frictional characteristics of fully formulated oils, friction modifiers, anti-wear formulations and more. This particular research tool has been invaluable in helping oil marketers and OEM’s develop many new products.
Yet, it is still static and engines are dynamic, meaning that with this test, conclusions still rely on making assumptions and calculating scaled conditions.
COMPANY decided it was time to get real. In 2015, we introduced the first Ring on Bore apparatus featuring Dynamic Loading…a unique industry-leading tribological technology that’s raising the bar for mimicking actual real world conditions.
This exclusive COMPANY technology comes closer than ever to replicating the actual combustion event in engines...by simulating a virtually endless array of engines.
This groundbreaking apparatus can be configured to represent prototype engine designs, materials and surface finishes…so actual data can be collected instead of relying on computer-generated models.
It allows one to study a lubricant’s ability to perform under dynamic combustion pressures.
And it provides the opportunity to test lubricant compatibility and performance with specific OEM parts.
This exciting Ring on Bore technology that features Dynamic Loading marks a true leap forward in the industry—energizing COMPANY’s quest to discover even more innovative ways to take the guesswork out of product development in the future.
It’s a future COMPANY is providing a glimpse of today. Coming soon: COMPANY’s exclusive Power-Cylinder Simulation.
This unprecedented level of dynamic tribology will:
Provide information that cannot be derived even from fired engine tests.
Allow us to study lubrication properties in combustion cycles that don’t even exist yet.
Test the tradeoff between viscosity and friction, and viscosity and friction modifier additives.
Shed light on the chemical appetite of futuristic right-sized, down-speeded, highly powered engines that don’t yet exist.
And, overall, eliminate more assumptions and guesswork than any tribometer the lubrication world’s ever seen.
For our partners developing the engines of the future and our customers developing the lubricants that will protect them, this new technological approach is invaluable…providing a much clearer picture of what’s really going on inside an engine.
COMPANY is indeed simulating reality. Which is stimulating new ideas. New developments. New products. And new business. Your business.
In a world of research once seen as flat, COMPANY’s pioneering spirit and ongoing exploration has led to a whole new world of discovery. A world that’s anything but flat.
