Micro Wear Process:
During Micro Wear Testing a pin or a ball is loaded onto a test sample with a stable weight with feedback control. This ensures high accuracy and precise wear rate data. Wear rates for the pin and the sample can also be calculated from the volume of material lost measured with an attached AFM or an Optical Profilometer. Linear mode with friction measurement is possible with the standard x-y motorized table while the rotative test require the rotation table upgrade. The Micro module can also be used to measure friction coefficient in higher load ranges.
