Runway Friction Testing

Our Customer

Douglas Tugmaster.

The Requirement

The linear actuator was required to raise and lower a wheel for testing the friction on runways. The equipment is used all over the world and needs to operate in extreme temperatures.


Supply a linear actuator with 68mm stroke, 6000N force and 5mm/s speed. Unit fitted with special stainless steel clevis end, potentiometer feedback and end of stroke limit switch feedback.

Key to the project

The customer needed long term reliability, with high ingress protection and temperature resilience. Unit has been salt spray tested to over 1000 hours


Industrial Devices have supplied the Lambda linear actuator with IP66 protection; we have supplied more than 400 actuators over the last 10 years. The units have proved very reliable with no product related failures. The Lambda units are designed for 100,000 operations at full load and have been tested to operate in temperatures ranging from -35⁰C to +90⁰C.

The Mu-Meter friction is considered to be the world’s best selling continuous friction measuring machine.
