HIGH THROUGHPUT TRIBOMETER
• Single function
• Simple to Operate
• Control via PLC
• Data exported on USB stick
This instrument is a development of an earlier machine, which use a standard lathe as the basic platform.
Load is applied to each test station by means of pneumatic cylinders, connected in parallel. Pressure to the cylinders is manually controlled by means of a precision pressure regulator.
An in-line torque transducer is included for sensing the total friction torque generated by the six test samples. Note that test stations can be removed for friction experiments on fewer specimen pairs, if required.
The machine is designed to be bench-mounted, with installation footprint kept to a minimum. It is simple to operate, so requires minimal training. Control is implemented with a PLC, with inputs via touch-screen. Data is stored by the device and exported on USB stick.
