TM 260.03 Experimental Module Pin on Disc Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

Using the experimental module, friction forces between a vertical pin and rotating disc can be investigated. The unit is intended for use with the basic module TM 260. The end of each pin specimen made of steel, aluminium or brass rubs against the rotating, hardened, ground steel disc. The contact pressure between the components can be varied using a lever with weights. The friction force is measured using a strain gauge force transducer in the bearing point of the loading mechanism. The disc is enclosed in an open container that can be filled with different lubricants for the experiments.


Learning Objectives / Experiments

- Friction forces for different pairs of friction materials and load
