TEST MACHINE

Taber Abraser

First introduced in the 1930's, this instrument was developed to perform mild abrasive wear testing on different materials.  By the use of standardized abrasive wheels, located off-centre over a rotating plate, and by removing the wear particles by a vacuum system, a very repeatable 2-body abrasion is created.

By varying the wheels, mild to more severe mechanisms can be used, depending on the material under investigation.
