TribSys Inc. tribometers are unique in the industry. Just as in metal stamping, where one press is used to run several dies, each test tooling uses a common platform. This platform is equipped with load sensing, data acquisition system, hydraulic actuators, and controls. This eliminates redundant equipment and capital expense. For customers with a small hydraulic press, TribSys tooling can be easily adapted.

The TribSys Twist Compression Test

The Twist Compression Test is used to evaluate lubricants and die materials for application in metal working processes.

CRITICAL FEATURES

The TribSys Twist Compression Test has several features that are critical for the successful evaluation of lubricants or die materials.

• 

Self centering tooling to ensure concentricity of annular tool and sheet specimen holder

• 

Self aligning sheet holder on a high capacity spherical bearing to ensure parallelism of tool and workpiece

• 

High capacity ultra-low friction bearing for low losses

• 

Engineered for low noise and maximum signal to noise ratio
