K93500 Pin on Disc Tester
The Pin-On-Disc machine is a versatile unit designed to evaluate the wear and friction characteristics on a variety of materials exposed to sliding contacts in dry or lubricated environments. The sliding friction test occurs between a stationary pin stylus and a rotating disk. Normal load, rotational speed, and wear track diameter can be varied. Electronic sensors monitor wear and the tangential force of friction as a function of load, speed, lubrication, or environmental condition. These parameters as well as the acoustic emissions at the contact are measured and displayed graphically utilizing the TriboDATA software package.
