Measuring bearing loads.
Monitoring lubrication.
Preventing damages.

To turn a bearing into a sensor, we currently still need an electrical contact. 💡 On the stationary part, this is usually relatively easy to implement using our standard contact screw. The rotating part is more challenging. We mainly use abrasive brushes for this.

In order to offer our customers the best possible solution, we are also actively conducting research in this field in close cooperation with the Institute for Product Development and Machine Elements at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

A joint publication has now been published on the analysis of the electrical impedance of graphite and silver graphite carbon brushes. ⚙🔍

Many thanks to Maximilian Hausmann and Prof. Eckhard Kirchner for the excellent collaboration! 💪
