Linear Reciprocating Test Rig

Linear Reciprocating Test Rig


The linear reciprocating tribometer is versatile digitally controlled equipment to test various metals, Composite materials under reciprocating sliding contact at various load and sliding frequencies, under dry and lubricated condition. The test rig is bench mounted self-standing with vibration isolators. The test specimen is loaded and then reciprocally slide against a fixed counter body a no. of geometry can be accommodated by using a simple clamping fixture for, square pin, the oscillating motion is provided by a Servo controlled scotch yoke mechanism. Dynamic Frictional force & co-efficient of friction is measured by a piezo-electric transducer.
