Fretting Test Module

Fretting Test Overview

Fretting wear tester module is used across wide applications ranging from materials, lubricant, grease, coating etc. testing. The state of the art fretting module has industry leading specifications on stroke and frequency. Controlled stroke from 5 micron at 500 hZ frequency across a wide temperature range makes it an ideal fretting wear material property tester for both industry and university research.

Module Features

Fretting Module Detailed Features

Force sensors- The tester uses high resolution, fast frequency response piezo sensors to measure real time inline friction forces.

Reliability on long runs - The unique flexure suspension guides the magnet assembly without contact or lubrication. The magnet, coil and stators are designed to eliminate performance degradation over time and deliver near maintenance free operation for wear test.

Position Sensor and Control - TThe most accurate and precise displacement sensor control on the market • Up to 1nm resolution and micron level of accuracy • Extremely low noise

Platform Rigidity - Vibration dampening frame, symmetrical design, rigid samples holders etc. allows for high system stiffness. High rigidity allows to create fretting loops with ease.

Environmental Chambers - Wide temperature from -40 to 1200C range allows the fretting tester to simulate several real life scenarios easily. 

Inline Sensors -  Sensors such as Acoustic emission to detect onset of cracks, ECR to measure surface resistance change allows to gain more insight on the test interface
