Rtec Instruments provides several ASTM, DIN, ISO standard and customized tests to evaluate wear resistance, friction, steel, aluminum, inconel, and more.
Solutions We Offer
So many choices. No wrong answers.
Perform up to 1200 °C high temperature tests on steel, aluminum, and alloys. Characterize hot hardness, friction, fretting, and wear under controlled atmospheric conditions. Simulate testing conditions close to real-life applications, such as aerospace, hot rolling, automobile, turbines, and power plants.
Fretting studies in the metal industry are of critical importance. Rtec Instruments provides unequaled fretting evaluation thanks to our stroke and frequency control. With a controlled stroke from 5 microns, frequency up to 500 Hz frequency, and a wide temperature range. Rtec Instruments’ fretting wear tester are pertinent in aerospace, automotive, power plant, and turbine applications.
Several applications require coated metal surfaces. Based on the coating process or the metal surface, the end results can be very different. Rtec Instrument provides solutions to characterize coating adhesion, scratch hardness, scratch resistance, wear, durability, fretting, roughness, corrosion resistance, and abrasion resistance. We provide tests at nano, micro and macro scales across a variety of temperatures and conditions.
Friction, Wear Studies
Perform tribology, friction, and wear tests under load ranges from mN to 12,000 N. Controlled environmental condition from -120°C to 1200°C, vacuum, and high pressure are also available. Rotary, linear reciprocating, fretting, and block on ring modes of choice depend on the application.
Combine 4 imaging modes in one head. It requires only one mouse click to alternate between the different imaging modes. Image any surface with ease – transparent, flat, dark, flat, curved, and more.
