Wide experience with the research and development of various consumer products including electric shavers, toothbrushes, audio/video, watches, television, kitchen appliances etc. to:
Enable new functionality.
Predict and prevent lifetime performance issues during development/design.
Troubleshoot and solve issues that arise in the field.
The lifetime performance and mechanical reliability of consumer products is determined to a major extent by tribology.
Wear and friction behaviour can be influenced through correct selection of the materials, mechanical design and lubrication, bearing in mind the manufacturability and design freedom.
