- Rotating pin-on-disc contact
- Reciprocating pin-on-plate contact
» Micro-Scale Abrasion Tester; Ball Cratering
» Block-On-Cylinder Tribometer
Wide ranges of load (70 to 1200N), speed and lubrication regime.
A rotating steel cylinder (d = 120mm) slides against a testing block, in dry condition or using deep feed lubrication.
» Four-Ball Machine
To test lubricants under standard (IP 360).
Two types of tests:
- scuffing (IP 239), where the upper ball slides against the 3 lower balls,
- rolling pitting fatigue (IP 300) where the upper ball rolls against the 3 lower balls.
