In multiple studies effective friction reduction and anti-wear functionality in tribological tests were achieved by using P-ILs as lubricant additives [17].
Knowing that there exists a relationship between tribological characteristics and the crystallinity, which in its turn is controlled by the manufacturing process, is a primary motivation for the present research on tribocharacteristics obtained by different manufacturing processes (extrusion and injection moulding).
The following conclusions on the influence of contact zone tribological parameters on the stabilisation of rotation speed of piezoelectric motors could be formed:

The tribological tests were carried out for all produced composites under different sliding speeds.
After 20 000 cycles, tribological traces were formed on the sample surfaces, see Fig.
Ball-milled MWCNTs when dispersed in lubricating oils could form better stable suspension compared to long MWCNTs and gave better tribological properties.
The tribological behaviors of composites when sliding the composites against a stainless steel ring were evaluated on an M-2000 (Zhangjiakou Xuan Hua Ke Hua Mechanical Machine Co., Ltd.) friction and a wear tester.
The vast majority of tribological performance evaluation of new additives intended for engine applications are conducted with the ball-on-flat configuration.
