Abstract

Purpose - This paper aims to design and manufacture a wear-test rig performing reciprocating movement that is more relevant to the elevator brake system. Also, a sample test result that was conducted in this experimental set-up is presented to evaluate the tribological properties of the brake linings of the elevator system that are activated in emergencies.
