We are an internationally leading test instrument manufacturer. Over 2000 labs across the world use test instruments by Ducom for their research, development and testing. Our tribometers cover most tests required in tribology (wear, friction and lubrication testing) and other mechanical characterization of materials.
Process of hot forming is performed under severe conditions of pressure and temperature at tool contact. Surface of tool in contact with job suffers wear due to flow of hot metal. Estimation of tool life requires friction and wear data under realistic conditions. The Ducom High Temperature "Hot Forming" Tribometer is an apparatus for physical analysis of sliding contacts and expansion of test strip under wide range of conditions.
Relevance: Metal Forming, Metal Working, High Speed Rolling and Drawing.
Ducom Instruments is now in Europe!
In view of our rapidly growing customer base and active research collaborations in Europe, we have established our new office in the Netherlands.
For tribological characterization of bulk materials and coatings at ambient and elevated temperatures. Study of influence of vacuum
on the tribological properties in combination with
temperatures and operating conditions is possible.
For thin films and soft coatings characterization studies, Elevated temperature testing and other test options for
scalable test capability.
Materials in corrosive and submerged environments encounter corrosion. Tribological behavior of materials in these conditions can
effectively be studied using the Inver PoD by Ducom.
