Future ETEK Technology

Industrial Measurement System, Inc.'s ETEK 3000 is the world's foremost acoustic measurement instrument for friction materials. In this video, a prototype automated loading unit measures an intact as-manufactured automotive brake pad. The measurement methodology is quick and non-destructive.

Acoustic data can be used for modeling new brake material formulations and can measure, as shown in this video, the consistency and variation of material in a pad. As such, the ETEK is ideally suited for quality control in the production of friction materials.

This video shows how the technology of a novel laboratory instrument, such as the ETEK 3000 can be converted for use in a different manner, in this case non-destructive production testing.
