Rotary module is used for several tribology wear tests. Common tests are pin on disk , ball on disk tribometer tests. The rotary drive module is mounted on top of XY stage that allows to create custom motions on MFT platform. The rotary module comes with several add ons. This note covers pin on disk tester with inline profilometer.
● 0.001 - 10,000 RPM
● Rotary, Cycle Motions
● Dry and Liquid tests
● -120 to 1000C Test Chambers
The state of the art Rtec Multi Function tribometer Mft-5000 is globally regarded as the most versatile and technologically advanced tribometer. The patented integrated 3D profilometer allows to analyze surface change vs time makes it usable for many application across various industries. In addition it comes with patented force sensors (piezo, capacitive & strain gauge) with ultra low resolution, highest speeds, stable torque and widest load range than any other commercially available tribometer.
MFT-5000 verstatily allows to mount several test/application specific modules on same platform. Please visit following links to learn more - Pin on Plate Module, Product page, Main Applications
Figure shows the ball wear mark after the test on ball on disk wear tester.
Graph below shows the comparison of coefficient of friction w.r.t. time for four specimens under same load and rotation speed against a Cr6 ball of 10mm diameter at 200C. The coating on sample 1 breaks the fastest while sample 2
shows low friction throughout the test. At the MFT platform it is possible to do such tests at room or at high temperatures.
Rtec multi-function tribometer comes with an patented inline 3D Profilometer. The profilometer automatically measures the surface topography of the wear track at pre-set intervals defined by the user e.g. after a certain number of cycles, duration of time or at the on-set of an event such as increase in friction. The XY stage is equipped with advanced encoders to automatically move the sample between the test and image area. The ability to quantifiably characterize the change in surface topography and wear track with time and combining it with friction data makes the analyses extremely powerful.
MFT-5000 rotary module is an excellent option to run tribological tests for wear resistance, friction measurements, volume loss measurement tests in pin , ball, disc on disc mode. The surfaces in relative motion can be operated in dry or lubricated mode with options to do the tests across wide range of temperatures, load or speed.The inline profilometer makes this tester a very powerful tool in the hand of the researcher or QC engineer.
● Wide loads micro N to 10000N can be applied to achieve desired contact pressure.
● The inline profilometer allows to quantify surface change vs time.
● The test can run from -120C to 1200C.
● The tool can be operated in dry or lubricated condition.
All the above makes this tester a very powerful tool in the hand of the researcher or QC engineer. Please contact us at email@example.com or call us at +1 (408)708-9226 for more information.
