HIGH THROUGHPUT TRIBOMETER
• Single function
• Easy to Operate
• Control via PLC
This is a three station version of the standard TE 66 Micro Scale Abrasion Tester, which has been built as both single and multi-station versions, for many years. This instrument represents a rationalistion of the most recent multi-station design.
The unit is used to determine the wear coefficient of hard and soft coatings and monolithic materials, by abrasive wear, in a ball on plate contact configuration, in accordance with BS EN 1071-6. The instrument may also be used as a crater-generating tool on coated surfaces for coating thickness determination.
Ball scar measurements are made in situ using a USB microscope camera, with software running on a user provided laptop or PC.
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.
