Tribometers - Friction and Wear Testers RSS Feed - Tribometers - Friction and Wear Testers

Tribometers are used to measure the friction or wear properties of materials. Testing can be carried out in various environments to simulate real life scenarios. In addition testing rigs can take numerous geometries but generally take the form of a loaded probe that impinges the sample that travels in a circular or reciprocating fashion. Friction can be calculated by measuring the forces acting between the 2 materials and wear by measuring the volume of material lost during the test.

Featured Equipment
The new NanoTest Vantage system from Micro Materials Ltd offers a range of mechanical tests on the nano-scale, allowing the researcher to build a complete picture of material performance. The nanotest Vantage can characterise you samples using numerous techniques including nanoindentation, nano-impact and fatigue, nano-scratch and wear and nano-fretting.
Other Equipment
The High Vacuum Tribometer has been created to provide controlled vacuum conditions (down to 10e -7 mbar) or gaseous environments. The highly efficient vacuum control system enables the user to reach the desired atmospheric condition very fast but in a controlled way.
Anton Paar has extended its range of pin-on-disk Tribometers by creating a powerful high-temperature version which can accurately simulate in-service conditions.
The Anton Paar Nano Tribometer is a unique instrument since its low load range down to 50µN. This instrument can perform both the linear reciprocating and rotating mode.
The Universal Mechanical Tester (UMT) system designed and manufactured by Bruker is one of the most flexible and popular tribometers available in the market.
