Vacuum Friction and Wear Tester

Incorporation in a Vacuum Tank of Various Types of Friction and Wear Testing Equipment for Testing in a Vacuum
By incorporating highly reputed Tribogear friction and wear testers in a vacuum chamber, it has become possible to carry out various kinds of friction and wear testing in a vacuum. This makes it possible to easily conduct product evaluation in a vacuum, which was formerly difficult, and the instruments are widely applicable to research and development applications for space manufacturing, new materials, and new technology.


Support for Various Types of Friction and Wear Testing

The loading method utilizes the highly reputed Heidon balance method, in which precise loading is possible from low loads. Options such as high speed friction testing using a rotating table are also possible. Support is also given for specifications involving minute loading amounts.

Support for Various Testing Conditions

Supports creating vacuums up to 10 Pa using a Turbo Molecular Pump. Additionally, a high vacuum specification can be provided as an option, so that testing will be possible under various conditions to match user needs. Please contact this company for more information.
