The TE 85 Eight Station Orbital Tooth Brushing Rig provides circular orbital, elliptical orbital and reciprocating motion, with fixed tooth brush samples loaded against moving teeth samples.
Toothbrushes are cut down for easy attachment to the loading arms.
These are then mounted in individual baths on the motion plate.
Eight computer controlled peristaltic pumps are included for delivery of fluid to each sample.
Three Axis Force Measurement
Optional three axis force transducers may be incorporated on as many stations as is required to provide measurement of applied load and frictional resistance on orthogonal axes. A high speed data acquisition interface is included for recording the signals.
Control and Data Acquisition
The TE 85 has PC based sequence control and data acquisition features. This is provided by an integrated SLIM 2000 Serial Link Interface Module and COMPEND 2000 software running on a host PC.
