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.
Bruker's UMT-1 nano- and micro-mechanical test instrument platform provides ultimate flexibility in indentation and scratch testing. The system utilizes six interchangeable mechanical heads that enable easy conversion from indenter to scratch tester, and between micro and nanoscale capabilities.
Other Equipment
The CSM 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.
Bruker's UMT-2 Nano+Micro Tribometer is the most versatile nano- and microtribometer in the world. It features a multiple-configuration, fully-computerized, single-instrument platform that utilizes Bruker's acclaimed and unique modular design, and can perform practically every common tribological test on nano and micro scales.
CSM Instruments has extended its range of pin-on-disk Tribometers by creating a powerful high-temperature version which can accurately simulate in-service conditions.
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.
The Nano Tribometer can control loads from nN to 1000mN or 250N. It is a benchtop type and the various modules can be easily interchanged and closed loop down force control makes this tribometer a power tool in hands of researchers.
The heavy duty Universal Tribometer from Rtec Instruments can take a load of up to 5000N. The tribometer is a powerful tool, ideal for traditional industries due to its floor standing form factor, easily interchangeable modules and closed loop force control.
The UMT-3 is highly robust and flexible, making it the most widely used tribometer worldwide performing practically every common industrial tribological test required needed in industries from aerospace, petroleum and automobile to engine, bearing, and fastener manufacturing.
