Ultra High Resolution Sensor Characterizes mN Forces
Friction Maps – Effect of Surface Texture on Friction
Patented Integrated In-line 3D Profilometer
Catheter friction tester comes with in-line integrated 3D profilometer . It automatically creates nm level 3D surface change plots during the test. This allows to correlates the lubricity and friction data with surface topography easily. The technology is specifically optimized for catheter related tests. The lambda head model combines 4 optical techniques on one head – interferometer, spinning disk confocal, dark field and bright field imaging. It can measure catheter surface – transparent, rough, smooth, and steep slopes surface with ease. The high resolution XY stage on the tribometer allows for automatic stitching of volume wear and roughness calculations.
