Fretting Tester

Rtec Instruments fretting tester allows to comprehensively characterize fretting wear from micron to macro scale. Ultra sensitive piezo based load cells, combined with rigid design, high stiffness holders, low floor noise and robust design provides quantitative fretting wear characterization of materials, interfaces, thin films, components etc.

To simulate real life scenarios the tests can be done in room or controlled environmental conditions. Its easiness of use and data interpretability makes this tester an ideal tool in hands of researchers or quality control engineers.
