Evaluates the dynamic Friction Tester at reciprocatory contacts of dry or lubricated materials as the function of normal load, velocity, frequency, temperature, and time. A wide variety of materials including fluid lubricants, greases, cutting fluids, metals, composites, ceramics, polymers, and coatings can be tested. The test is conducted by pressing the test specimen against a ball, pin, or cylinder undergoing reciprocating linear motion, producing a sinusoidal velocity profile which allows for the monitoring of static and dynamic Friction Tester force over a wide range of linear sliding speeds. The test load, stroke, frequency, and temperature can be adjusted to simulate different conditions.
