Project Description

Taber Linear Abraser

Taber Linear Abraser is used to determine the test sample’s abrasion resistance, the scratch resistance after single or multiple scratches, or the color transferability by measuring the color fastness of the specimen subjected to abrasion. It can perform dry abrasion tests and wet abrasion tests.

This Taber linear abrader can test samples of any size or shape, especially suitable for the abrasion test of products with contoured or flat surfaces with polish, such as computer mouse and plastic surfaces of electronic products. It is commonly used in plastics, auto parts, rubber, leather, textiles, electroplated products, printed items, paint finishes, etc.

We call it the Linear Abrasion Tester because there is a metal arm on the top side of the machine, which can reciprocate in a linear motion. A metal rod vertically goes through the bore at the end of the arm. The rod is not fixed, and it can move vertically along with the changes in the flatness of the contact surface at the bottom of the metal rod. The abradant is attached to the bottom of the rod, and the specified number of weights are installed to the top of the rod. When the horizontal arm travels to and fro, the grinding head moves up and down because the grinding head follows the contours of the test piece. The sample’s abrasion performance is evaluated after the specified number of reciprocating rubbing in the given conditions.

The horizontal arm of this machine has 5 adjustable moving distances: 0.5”, 1”, 2”, 3” and 4”. Other special moving distances can also be customized. The test cycles can be set freely, and the maximum can be set at 999,999 cycles. The grinding head’s abradant may need to be replaced during the test. The arm’s moving speed can be adjusted from 2 to 75 cycles / min, among which 2 cycles / min, 15 cycles / min, 25 cycles / min, 30 cycles / min, 40 cycles / min, 60 cycles /min are the standard moving speed of the TABER. The load of the sample can be adjusted freely during the test. The standard maximum load includes a Test rod 350 g and three pieces of weights of 250g. Users can also customize weights according to their test requirements.
