TYPE:14FW Surface Property Tester



Supports a Variety of Research Topics

A DC servo motor (FW type) permits a linear movement of the mobile base when loaded with a test piece.

The resistance transmission mechanism, consisting of the vertical arm and horizontal arm with two fulcrums, conveys the resistance received from each adapter to the detector of the load converter.

A zero balancer is provided at one end of the horizontal arm to balance the dead weight of each adapter so that the vertical loading becomes zero.

In addition, at the other end of the arm there is an adaptor holder, and directly above this there is a weight pan on which weights up to 1000g can be applied.

The detected resistance is amplified by the dynamic strain amplifier and can be output to each recorder.

An easy to use touch panel has been utilized in the operation and display units.

Support for Various JIS Standards

By replacing the attachment, it will be possible to carry out testing that conforms to JIS K7125, P8147.

 Surface Scratching Hardness Measurement JIS K5600

Applying the prescribed vertical loading to the conical scratching needle, the size of the scratch width realized from the scratching is used to show the scratching hardness.

Pencil scratching intensity testing is also possible.

ASTM D1894 Measurement of Static Friction and Dynamic Friction using Surface, Line or Point Pressure

Measurement is also possible from surface, line, or point pressure, or by combining mutual samples.

The average dynamic friction calculation, which is normally troublesome and suffers from variations due to individuals, can be easily shown.

* Using TriboSoft (Option)

Measurement of Surface Stickiness

The stickiness is indicated numerically according to the rolling resistance of the stainless steel roller supported by bearings.

Real-time Measurement of Changes in Frictional Resistance due to Wear

Repeating the friction of the return operation, the number of returns before changes to the surface condition and peeling of the film occurred can be determined from the increase and decrease in the frictional resistance.

Measurement of Scratching Intensity

Measurement of scratching intensity can be carried out in the horizontal direction.

Measurement of Thin Film Adhesion

By increasing the vertical loading on the scratching needle in stages, the critical loading can be found from the changes in the scratching resistance.
