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 Nano Tribometer (NTR2) is developed to study surface interaction at very low contact pressure, particularly when there are soft materials of interest.
Anton Paar has expanded its Tribometers product line with the introduction of powerful High Temperature Tribometer (THT) that can accurately simulate in-service conditions.
Anton Paar TriTec’s High Vacuum Tribometer (HVTHT) has been designed to achieve controlled gaseous environments or vacuum conditions down to 10e-7mbar.
The Universal Mechanical Tester (UMT) system designed and manufactured by Bruker is one of the most flexible and popular tribometers available in the market.
All manufacturers need to address the issue related to the control of friction and wear in moving machine components. Obtaining quantitative data at different humidity and temperature and in the presence of lubricants is crucial.
