R Brake has a large Technology Centre at its facilities, which allows the company to continually create new products that satisfy the needs of the market.
At its laboratories, it tests all of its product lines on its three full-scale dynamometers, in addition to running tests on vehicles. The Technology Centre has a test bench that is unique in Europe, which allows usto develop new products internally and run braking tests at its installations on a scale of 1:1.
R Brake are subjected to intensive dynamometer testing to estimate and predict, among a variety of procedures, both vehicle braking distances as well as deceleration, as specified in the “Global Spec” test standards, among others.
The Research and Development Department has the capacity to run NVH tests, simulating a commercial vehicle on our modern 1:1 scale SCHENCK dynamometer, using the parameters for the vehicle and brake system provided by its customers, in addition to the information obtained in other tests.
By simulating the vehicle speed and mass, it is possible to obtain all of the information without the distortion of environmental influences. It also monitors friction stability, wear, noise, fading, and the condition of the discs.
