This is a highly compact and cost effective way to measure the wear of materials (for instance prosthetic joint materials) in parallel. With  a total of up to 50 test stations, we can simultaneously measure wear of up to 50 (lubricated) test contacts.  This capacity makes it possible to test different material combinations and produce statistical results reliably and fast.
