Pin On Disc

Imperial High Temperature Friction Wear test machine is a Pin-on Disc type machine, versatile designed to study the Friction & Wear properties in sliding contacts. Sliding occurs between a stationary pin and a rotating disc at a fixed rpm / speed (continuously variable).

The Disc is driven by a 2.67 HP motor capable of running at 0 – 2000 rpm. The stationary upper specimen Pin holding the ball of the reqd. diameter can be loaded manually (or Automated by the software optionally). Precise Loading can be done manually or thru software (in automated version). Piezo electric sensor is used for the measurement of Frictional force. The rotating disc can be heated upto 650 deg C. Normal Load, rotational speed & wear track diameter can be varied. The Load, Frictional Force, Temperature (disc & PIN) & rpm are digitally displayed. These parameters Like: Load, sliding speed, frictional force & coeff. of friction are logged and displayed on the PC. The software Displays variety of graphs (wear rate, PV diagram & coeff of friction), meters, and can analyze upto 9 different files realtime. The software allows preset & Ramp parameters (Sequence control) along with the test duration.

The machine comes in three parts:

The Mechanical unit:
Comprising the hardware, test-setup housed in a sealed chamber for gaseous environment around the sample.

Instrumentation & Control Panel :
Housing the electronics amplifiers & displays

PC & DAQ software:
PIV 3.3 GHz
CD writer
17” LCD monitor
A Laser printer
Data Acq. Card
Tribotech Controller Software.
