WAMsc is a sliding contact test machine which simulates non-Hertzian sliding contact conditions. These types of contacts are most often found in journal bearings and between the cage and land surfaces of a rolling element bearing, where the surfaces are separated by a hydrodynamic oil film. WAMsc is frequently used to compare the tribological performance of bearing materials and lubricants under start/stop, hydrodynamic liftoff, debris-tolerance, and oil-out test conditions.
