Researchers at the Luleå University of Technology and Scania in Sweden, recently investigated how surface topography influences oil film formation in tribological interfaces pertinent to gears. The study was oriented towards the improvement of fuel economy and sustainability. Jonny Hansen, a member of the research team, explains how Mountains® software was used to help achieve results.
An automotive manufacturer used Mountains® software to study parameters associated with wear and lubrication.
A French car manufacturer performed quality control of automotive dashboard material (plastic). Measured data was checked to be in compliance with ISO 25178 parameters.
In the automotive industry, engineers used Mountains® to check compliance of components with nominal form.
Friction, core and lubrication zones of a motor cylinder were studied in order to investigate opportunities for improving fuel efficiency and thus reduce harmful emissions. Mountains® software was used to provide advanced analysis of the volume of the zones studied.
