Adjust the position of the wear pattern via the loading arm pivot

Test bodies are very easy to change and testing can be made with or without lubricant / oil.

We can easily machine the ring/disc carrier component attached to the motor's shaft to fit custom ring/disc components.


Example of block on ring test: 62 mm diameter replaceable rotating carbon steel disc, 16mm wide with 1%C and 1.5%Cr according to ISO 683-17, hardness: 58..65 HRC.


The loading arm can easily be repositioned to create new wear patterns without having to change test samples.

Heating of the oil/lubricant tray is not included but possible up to 100°C / 212°F via adhesive heating pads.
