Tribometers - Friction and Wear Testers RSS Feed - Tribometers - Friction and Wear Testers

Tribometers are used to measure the friction or wear properties of materials. Testing can be carried out in various environments to simulate real life scenarios. In addition testing rigs can take numerous geometries but generally take the form of a loaded probe that impinges the sample that travels in a circular or reciprocating fashion. Friction can be calculated by measuring the forces acting between the 2 materials and wear by measuring the volume of material lost during the test.
