Nano Wear Process:
During Nano Wear a pin or a ball is loaded onto a test sample with a stable weight with feedback control. Depth change is recorded precisely during the test using a precision capacitor. Wear rate is calculated with this information. Wear rates for the pin and the disk can also be calculated from the volume of material measured with an attached AFM or Optical Profilometer. Linear mode with friction measurement is possible with the standard x-y motorized table while rotative tests require the rotation table upgrade. The nano module can also be used to measure friction coefficient at very low load.
