Test oil, lubricants, additives, grease using several ASTM, DIN, ISO standards. Carry out standard and customized tests across a wide range of load, speeds, and test temperature. Rotary, block on ring, 4 ball, SRV, HFRR, linear reciprocating, and EP wear modes are available.
Fretting and Wear Resistance
Studying fretting, coatings, and materials in the aerospace industry is critical for new technology, space exploration, aging aircrafts, structural integrity, riveted aircraft structure, aircraft engines, aluminum alloys, and titanium alloys. Rtec Instruments provides unequaled specifications for stroke and frequency control for fretting evaluation. Controlled stroke from 5 microns and frequency up to 500 Hz frequency across a wide temperature range makes it an ideal fretting wear tester for both industry and university research.
Scratch Adhesion, Resistance
Study scratch adhesion, scratch hardness, and scratch resistance at nano, micro and macro scale. In-line integrated 3D profilometer creates 3D stitched images to comprehensively and conclusively characterize the coating failures. Advanced capacitive sensors measures penetration depth with resolution needed to differentiate coatings that have similar properties.
Rtec Instruments’ brake screening tester provides tribological analysis of quick rotor and brake materials by measuring friction and wear. The brake tester comes with ultra high torque motors. Combined with a patented in-line profilometer, wear quantification of both brake and rotor surface change vs number of cycles, speed, and loads is possible. Perform both automotive standard tests (SAE J2522) and custom test procedures cost effectively on brake pads, frictional materials, and more.
Optics and Glass 3D Imaging
Analyze transparent, curved or flat glass, optical, screen, coated surfaces with ease. Characterize the roughness, defects, scratches, and features using our unique optics technology. Our one-of-a-kind universal profiler combines 4 imaging modes (confocal, interferometer, dark field and bright field) in one head. This provides measurement of any surfaces on the same platform.
Our Multi function tribometer is globally regarded as the most versatile and advanced.
