    Voice Coil With Real Time Stroke Control

    The Smallest Controllable Stroke - 5um to 4mm, up to 300Hz

    Real-time stroke, frequency monitoring, and correction using LVDT.

    High Reliability - Flexure Design

    The flexural suspension guides the magnet assembly without

    Environmental Control, Surface Electrical Measurement

    Humidity, temperature, inert gas, and electrical measurements for
    real-life simulation.

    High Frequency Response Force Sensors

    Piezo-based sensors measure friction force with ultra high accuracy at a high-frequency reciprocating test.

    Fretting test module

    High Speed Controllers

    The Fretting Module Is perfect for testing surface damage that occurs between two contacting surfaces experiencing oscillatory displacement of a small amplitude.

    Fretting test regimes
    Test Debris
    • Debris formation from asperity contacts
    • Oxidation at contacting surface because of humidity, temperature, or chemical composition change
    • Oil, lubrication starvation regimes causing wear
    • Wear due to electric discharge
    • Repetitive collision between surfaces
    • Fatigue related cracks – onset of debris
    • Polymerization of organic materials at surface
    • Fine powdered debris – highly oxidized
    • Residual steady stage flow of debris
    • Diffusive wear
    • Melting wear
