Initial Plastic Deformation To Wear Analysis
The wear process of a metal sample (Cu 110) and a polymer sample (teflon) is simulated in controlled and monitored manner using the Nanovea Mechanical Tester. In this study, we would like to showcase that the controlling and measuring the load and depth is ideal for wear analysis.
Extreme Low Speed Friction Evaluation On Rubber
The coefficient of friction, COF, of rubber against different materials is measured in a controlled and monitored manner using the Nanovea Tribometer. In this study, we would like to showcase the capacity of the Tribometer for measuring the coefficient of friction of different materials at extreme low speeds.
Surface Finish Measurement of Processed Leather
In this application, the Nanovea ST400 Profilometer is used to measure and compare the surface finish of 2 different but closely processed leather samples. Several surface parameters will be automatically calculated from the surface profile. Here we will focus on surface roughness, dimple depth, dimple pitch and dimple diameter for comparative evaluation.
