The testing machine basically consists of a controller and a mechanical station.
The controller is compatible with different mechanical stations (eg. different kind of tribological test or contact geometry). The test specimen is mounted on the mechanics and the load is applied by mean of weight and mechanical amplifier. The test setup is input into the controller. The test is started from the touch screen controller, all the test variables are controlled and recorded. When the end of the test is reached the machine automatically stops.
All the test setup are programmable using the touch screen. The acquired data can be exported and evaluated on external PC using a Windows based software. The operator safety is granted by a continuous control of safety condition by means of interlocks.
