Equipment – Tribology

_____________________________________________________________________

Some examples of our equipment to investigate friction and wear behaviour of different friction couples.

3D-profilometer    100m-NLGI2E50x

We use a 3D-Profilometer to observe solid surfaces.

mirkro

An optical microscope is used for the investigation of grease structure

 

nano1

Nano-Tribometer for friction measurements (lubricated and dry contacts). F.e. we can realise very low normal forces (mN).

Tribometer  kugel-scheibe2

Ball on disc apparatus to investigate lubricated contacts. Max. normal force: 20N (p=1,6 GPa)
