Measure wear and friction data in real time with the included software, with or without lubricantion in the easiest way possible!
Block on ring demo
Block on ring sample holder (left) and pin on disc sample holder mounted to the loading arm (right)
Pin on disc holder: Up to 9.5mm diameter samples
Block on ring holder: Up to 15mm wide samples
Want to measure linear / reciprocating wear? That is an excellent job for i-Motor
Adjustable cover with easy access to the test bodies (block on ring set-up)
Electronics box with speed controller, emergency stop switch and USB port
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.
- Continuous recording of the abrasive friction force, CoF & speed
- Windows software included
High RPM & software controlled servomotor with adjustable vice grip & magnetic clamp cover available!
