Test bench forradial plain bearingsfor ships’ shaft drives
RST Rostock System-Technik developed a test bench for the development of radial plain bearings for ships’ shaft drives, which were to be lubricated by seawater instead of oil or grease. The test bench enables the use of purified seawater with any media and sediment in order to simulate highly-varied ambient conditions. This development was made for SKF Marine.
RST was responsible for the entire development process for the mechanical, hydraulic, electronic and software technical (control) components of the test bench – from its design via manufacturing up to commissioning at the customer’s.
