Abstract : This report describes the design and use of a pins-on-disc wear and friction testing machine which has been constructed for use by the Wear Technology Group. The tester is capable of assessing sliding wear at speeds up to 4 m/sec and loads up to 40 N. During a wear run the friction and contact resistance are constantly monitored giving a clear picture of the condition of the surfaces.
