This Unit is designed for the study of the relations between friction forces and normal forces, between hard and soft surfaces, between lubricated or dry surfaces and between rolling surfaces for several type of materials.
The unit is assembled in an anodized aluminum profile structure, in steel painted panel.
This unit is mainly composed of:
Friction cushions set: friction pads having stainless steel, brass, ferodo, nylon and rubber surfaces are provided as standard.
In order to carry out some of the practices with MEF unit 2 set of weights “B type” are required.
Manuals: This unit is supplied with the following manuals: Required services, Assembly and Installation, Starting-up, Security, Maintenance and Practices manual.
Dimensions: 400 x 400 x 600 mm. approx.
Weight: 20 Kg. approx.
1- Investigation of the relations between the friction forces and normal forces between surfaces in contact.
2- Comparison of the values between dry surfaces in contact using several materials, by the sliding coefficient.
3- Comparison of the friction values for dry and lubricated surfaces.
4- Comparison of the friction force for sliding surfaces with rolling surfaces.
5- Comparison of the friction force of soft and hard rolling surfaces.
