Variable Normal Load Friction and Wear Measurement System

A More Advanced Type of Wear Tester has been Realized
In this instrument, for a single measurement of test paper strip, it is possible to create 3-dimensional wear condition graphs showing the relationships between the number of wear movements, vertical loading, friction and wear volumes, and to determine the critical loading responding to wear transitions. Accordingly, not only will it be unnecessary to have multiple test pieces, but the testing time will also be greatly shortened and the requirement for troublesome data analysis can be eliminated, allowing excellent data to be obtained.


Adding Displacement Measurement and Image Recording to the Friction Measurement

In addition to the friction measurement using the loading converter, the measuring element will have the friction amount, wear impression, and scratching depth measured by the displacement meter.

With the collection of this real-time data, it will be possible to analyze the object from many points of view.

Furthermore, by using the instrument together with the optional TriboCCD System, even more advanced testing, such as behavioral analysis of wear powder and lubricant travel conditions, can be carried out.

Adding Various Functions While Maintaining the Previous Reliability of the Measuring System

The loading method uses the traditional Tribogear balance arm mechanism to maintain the high reliability.

Switching between the fixed loading and continuous loading testing modes can be easily carried out using the touch panel.

For the loading, too, the previous mechanism requiring weights to be placed manually has evolved into an automatic system based on numerical input.

Furthermore, a rich variety of functions have been added, including a moveable table with standard Y-direction stage and angle adjusting functions.
