K93600 Multispecimen Tester
Measures and displays a variety of friction and wear characteristics on various geometric test samples with different compositions and forms. Test configurations are easy to change on the instrument: single or multiple, sliding or rolling, point line or area contacts are available. A wide range of materials including coatings, lubricants, plastics, metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites can be analyzed. The test is performed by mounting a test samples into the spindle and rotating it against a stationary counter0face test specimen. The spindle rotation speed, normal load, and interface temperature can be user-adjusted in accordance with published ASTM standards. Specimen holders are designed for standard test configurations; optional custom designed holders for customer specific applications are also available. This unit has a temperature range to 120°C, load to 1000N and speed up to 2000 rpm. Windows®-based TriboDATA data acquisition software is included, and some of the possible configurations are shown in the configurations table below.
