TQC SHEEN TB0000 Taber Reciprocating Abraser
The TABER®Reciprocating Abraser is a test apparatus similar to the instrument described in test method ISO 1518. The Reciprocating Abraser is ideal for flat surfaces.With optional attachments the Reciprocating Abraser can be configured to evaluate the relative resistance or susceptibility of a material surface to physical damage such as wear and abrasion, scratch, gouge, rub, scrape, mar,etc..
The TABER Reciprocating Abraser includes a counterbalanced arm which pivots on an adjustable height gantry system. The counterweight allows the user to balance the test arm, ensuring precise test load set-up regardless of the weight of the attachment. Incorporated at the end of the arm is a tool holder to which optional attachments and weights may be secured. A sliding specimen platform moves in a horizontal, reciprocating motion under the stationary tool holder.
Test parameters such as stroke length (6 - 155mm), speed (3-75 cycles per minute) and load (1N -24N maximum, with included weights of 1N, 2N, 2.5N, 5N, 10N & 24N) are adjustable so optimal settings for each material can be established.
