The fast reciprocating drive is typically used for pin/ball on disk/plate/ring, piston ring liner etc. tests. The drive is mounted on top of XY stage in the mounting cavity. The tribometer allows running both reciprocating drive and XY stage at same time and can be programmed independently. The stroke of the stage can be changed easily. Various combination of speed vs distance is mentioned in the specification below. This drive is used as a base module to complete several other environmental modules. The sample is mounted on the drive using our standard universal plate holder or by using the holes pattern provide on top of table. Add on LVDT encoder resolution is improved drastically by choosing a lower maximum range encoder. +Adjustable stoke and speed +LVDT for precise stroke measurement
