Twin Roller Tribometer 3000
TwinRoller-3000 is designed to study traction, wear, and rolling contact fatigue (RCF) under wide range of test conditions. In-line torque, acoustic etc. allows quantification of minute differences. Rtec-Instruments’ TwinRoller-3000 is an ideal twin roller machine to study traction, wear, and rolling contact fatigue under various combinations of rolling sliding ratios. With an open platform architecture that allows easy access and use, the tester comprises of two high torque independently controlled servo motors. The force is applied using electro servo drives. Fully automated programs and advance controllers allows for high repeatability and precision measurements.
Rtec Instruments develops and manufactures advanced mechanical and surface testing and measurement solutions for research and industrial applications. We specialize in combining techniques that provide a unique perspective in material testing. Our testers include tribometer, profilometer, scratch tester, high-temperature indenter, and corrosion testers. Furthermore, our testers provide the most robust and versatile platform in the market for testing friction, wear, adhesion, hardness, roughness, and film thickness from nano to macro-scale.
