The T2000 pneumatic tribometer from Nanovea is designed to deliver cutting edge pin on disc tribology with a range of extra capabilities.
With a variety of test and environmental configurations available up to loads of 2000N the T2000 has been designed with flexibility and advanced requirements in mind.
High end options include innovative dual controlled loading, in-situ microscopes and a high speed profilometer.
Nanovea Inc are based in Irvine, a tech hub of Southern California. They have been redefining standards in quality control and materials development internationally for over a decade. Nanovea’s instruments can be found in renowned education and industrial organisations around the world.
The T2000 is truly modular meaning you can start with test and environmental modules or easily add them later. There is no need to buy more than one tribometer for different tests and conditions because all can be completed on one T2000. In addition there are advanced optical options such as an in-situ microscope or high speed 3D profilometer available.
New Nanovea tribometers utilise advanced pneumatic loading technology to apply the vertical load onto a sample. This technology allows the tribometer to apply a constant force that is not badly influenced by changes in the sample topography. Pneumatic technology has an inherent natural dampening effect which further contributes to this constant force.
Pneumatic loading is computer controlled contributing to ease of use, allowing a greater deal of automation and allowing the addition of modes requiring load ramping such as scratch testing.
In addition a second linear stage can be used to apply a second oscillating load to simulate fluctuation of the overall load at frequencies up to 150Hz. This allows users to recreate real life applications where loads are not necessarily constant.
