ForceBoard™ - Block on Ring & Pin on Disc Wear tester
Looking for an accurate, repeatable, really easy to use and lightweight multi purpose wear tester? This is it... The wear tester is used together with the ForceBoard base unit and has combined block on ring and pin on disc functionality!
- Block on ring + added pin on disc functionality
- Adjustable normal force via weight or spring
- Adjustable speed (0-220rpm)
- Abrasive friction force logging
- Long & short term term tests with averaging
- Run your tests with or without lubricants
- Total system weight: ~12kg
Want to measure linear / reciprocating wear? That is an excellent job for our i-Motor
Measure and record wear and friction data in real time, with or without lubrication and/or additives in the easiest way possible!
Adjustable cover with easy access to the test bodies

Test bodies are very easy to change and allows for wear testing of cylinder and block components with or without lubricant / oil.
Speed: 400mm/sec, 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.
The wear rate during the test can easily be measured by adding a dial indicator. The wear components (ring + pin/block) can also be weighed before and after the test to measure the wear via material/mass loss.

Adjust the position of the wear pattern via the loading arm for multiple wear patterns / tests on the same test sample
ForceBoard™ is a modularized measurement system and can be used for a wide range of other applications, here's a few of them:
