Mao Ueda, Project Leader, Shell Lubricants Japan

‘We will keep using PCS machines because PCS equipment is becoming the industry standard, i.e., OEMs specifically ask lubricant suppliers to get data by using PCS equipment. I’ve learned quite a lot about PCS machines during my PhD in Imperial College London. This makes me more confident to set a condition using PCS equipment to simulate a particular phenomenon such as mild wear, scuffing and pitting.’
