Friction Management


Our RPM system provides immediate, intuitive insight into the operating performance of friction management assets.

We know that a successful friction management program comes down to three key tenets:

     1. Maximize system uptime

     2. Optimize application rates

     3. Minimize the cost of running the program

Our Remote Performance Monitoring (RPM) platform is built specifically around helping you achieve these goals. As the global Friction Management experts our RPM system is filled with toolsets that makes managing your Friction Management program easy. We can help you improve scheduling, maintenance activities, reduce track access requirements, and get the most out of your investment.
