Torque / Tension / CoF Testing
The application of a plating or coating to a threaded fastener can greatly affect the state of friction in the joint and we are here to ensure fastener quality and safety. Using our 3200 LabMaster Professional friction tester, we test the consistency of friction throughout the fastener. To do so the fastener is properly prepared and mounted in our friction tester, where we measure the static and kinetic friction produced within the fastener joint.
Our friction tester gives us the capability to evaluate fasteners for a variety of test specifications such as:
