Pin On DiscPin on Disc type Tribometer Friction & Wear MachineThe Tribotech Tribometer uses a pin-on-disk system to measure wear. The unit consists of agimbaled arm to which the pin is attached, a fixture which accommodates disks up to 165 mm indiameter & 8 mm thick, an electronic force sensor for measuring the friction force, and acomputer software (on Labview platform) for displaying the parameters, printing, or storing datafor analysis. The motor driven turntable produces up to 3000 rpm. Wear is quantified bymeasuring the wear groove with a profilometer (to be ordered saperately) and measuring theamount of material removed. Users simply specify the turntable speed, the load, and any otherdesired test variables such as friction limit and number of rotations.Designed for unattended use, a user need only place the test material into turntable fixture andspecify the test variables. A pre-determined Hertzian pressure is automatically applied to the pinusing a system of weights. Rotating the turntable while applying this force to the pin includessliding wear as well as a friction force. Since pins can be fabricated from a wide range of materials virtually any combination of metal, glass, plastic, composite, or ceramic substrates canbe tested.Software included with this model provides for quick calculation of the Hertzian pressurebetween the pin and disk. The cup-like (housing) enclosed fixture permits the use of liquidlubricants during a wear test (optionally)

 The friction coefficient signal is displayed in real time on a PC Screen. Data can be viewed as itis logged for the entire specified test duration, which can be recalled later for detailed analysis.The software allows 9 different logged test files for on-line analysis / mapping The softwaredisplays the test time, turn count, linear velocity, and user-defined test parameters. This data canbe stored and printed along with the friction traces.
 Records friction and wear in sliding contact in dry, lubricated, controlled environment and partialvacuum.
