What different types of wear testing instruments are available to manufacturers?

Author: Released in:2018-08-23 Click:986

There are numerous instruments available that can simulate different types of wear modes. Taber’s solutions are versatile, affordable, easy to operate and allow the user to evaluate:

Two-body abrasive wear – hard particles are forced against and moved along a solid surface;
Sliding wear – occurs between two solid bodies and is generated from a reciprocating motion;
Mar abrasion – permanent deformations that have not ruptured the surface of a coating, but tend to disfigure or change the appearance of its surface;
Rolling abrasion (or three-body wear) – happens when abrasive particles or debris are allowed to “roll” between the surface and a contacting substance.

Knowing which test method your industry uses is typically the first step to determining which instrument is right for your application.

However in many cases, material advances are outpacing test method development and historic methods may not be applicable. This leaves many manufacturers guessing which instrument they should be using. Taber Industries is often called upon to lend our expertise in these situations to offer our advice and consultation.

Taber’s two most popular options include our Model 5135 Rotary Abraser and Model 5750 Linear Abraser. In addition we offer the Model 155 Grit Feeder Attachment, Model 418 Crockmeter, Model 800 Falling Sand Tester, Model 5900 Reciprocating Abraser, Model 6160 Oscillating Abrasion Tester, Model 5800 Heavy Duty Linear Abraser and Model 5820 Webbing Abrasion Tester.

Optional attachments also allow different configurations of these instruments to perform specialized abrasion tests for such products as flexible packaging, magnetic stripe, wire / cable insulation, decorated plastics, plus many more.
