The VT-3.0 is our third generation vacuum tribometer that is now modular and more capable than ever. Easily switch from manual to automatic loading, change test modes from rotary to angular oscillation and even linear oscillation.
Available in both desktop and floor standing formats to accommodate your space requirements.
Tribology testing in vacuum and temperatures from -150 to +1000 deg C
*other sensors with optional modules. Custom sensor configurations available.
The Ducom Vacuum Tribometer has been supplied in various configurations. Some examples of previously manufactured product variations are below:
Large ports for observation and customization makes the VT-3.0 future ready for any technique you want to add to your tester. The access door opens wide for convenient test setup, cleaning and maintenance.
Our patented, fully decoupled multi axial sensor heads use capacitive transducers and can sense forces from a few milli Newtons (mN) to hundreds of Newtons (N). Sensing heads are easily interchangeable to the VT-3.0 to adapt to your evolving needs.
Every VT-3.0 tester comes standard with the capability to perform continuous clockwise and counterclockwise tests, angular reciprocation and angular scratch tests. With the addition of the Linear Module (LRM), linear reciprocation and linear scratches are also possible.
Built on our POD-4.0 Multi-Capability Tribometer platform, the VT-3.0 is customizable. Now your truly unique applications can have a truly unique tester.
