Abstract

Texture Technologies has developed a versatile, new fixture, the TA-317 Vertical Friction Rig, to measure friction characteristics of various materials with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer. The Vertical Friction Rig design has been registered with the OHIM. The fixture has a swinging cantilevered arm with assorted mounts to hold the product to be tested and a stationary vertical plate for holding substrate material. Weights are placed on the end of the cantilevered arm to change the applied nominal force between the product being tested and the target material.
