Vesconite bushings used in tyre test rig

South Africa – Mechanical and aeronautical engineering students at the University of Pretoria, in South Africa, are using Vesconite bushings in their tyre test rig, located at the University’s Vehicle Dynamics Group. The rig consists of a shaft that is pushed axially through the bushes by an actuator. On the other end of the rig is a metal plate that is pushed against a tyre when it is tested. The rig currently tests small commercial vehicle tyres, but the intention is for the Vehicle Dynamics Group to test larger dump truck tyres.
