TAPERADER® is a portable tribometer which generates real-time reproducible measurements of the abrasion resistance of surfaces using a process known as “Micro-Grinding”. This pocket-size Tribometer allows, in situ, direct and fast assessment of:
The TAPERADER, tribometer offers two measuring methods:
Time mode: – During a preselected time measurement, 60 to 240 seconds, it produces an abrasion in the μm-scale, which is documented and displayed in a nm-scale.
Depth mode: - The time, required to reach a preselected abrasion depth, is showed on the display. This innovative method is used in research and development as well as in quality assurance and process optimization.
