TRIBOMETERS



The Tribometers provide highly accurate and repeatable wear and friction testing compliant to ISO and ASTM standards. Now available as a stand alone dual load controlled or traditional desktop dead load system. Each designed, at the core, with a self-tuned high quality motor with a 20bit internal speed and a 16bit external position (>0.006°) encoder, the Tribometer provides an unmatched range of rotational speeds from 0.01 to 5000rpm. Because of the quick feedback control, these speeds can be changed almost instantly in either a stepwise jump or at a continuous rate. This is specifically useful to obtain continuous Stribeck curves or to study static coefficient behaviors. Contrary to systems that use a torque sensor, the Nanovea Tribometers uses a high precision load cell that measures accurately and separately friction forces. The Tribometers can be provided with a full range of environment modules to meet the requirements of specific applications. To precisely measure wear track volume and calculate wear rates in situ, a 3D non-contact optical profiler module allows calculation of the total wear volume of the entire track. Because wear tests can be of long durations, a dedicated Tribometer is an essential part of any tribology research laboratory. The robust high quality open design of the Nanovea Tribometers ensures longevity with low cost of ownership.
