Polymer Belt Wear

Wear & Friction Of Polymer Belts Using Tribometer

 

In this study, we simulated and compared the wear behaviors of belts with different surface texture to showcase the capacity of Nanovea Tribometer in simulating the wear process of the belt in a controlled and monitored manner.

Nanoindentation Frequency Sweep

DMA Frequency Sweep On Polymer Using Nanoindentation

In this application, the Nanovea Mechanical Tester, in Nanoindentation mode is used to study the
viscoelastic properties of a polished tire sample at different DMA frequencies.

Polymer Belt Roughness

Roughness & Texture Of Polymer Belts Using 3D Profilometry

The roughness and texture of two belts were measured and compared using the Nanovea ST400 optical profilometer to showcase the capability of the Nanovea optical profilometer in providing comprehensive and user friendly surface analysis of belts with different textures.
