µ-METER Friction Measurement µ-value friction coefficient tester
  • µ-METER Friction Measurement µ-value friction coefficient tester

    The test yarn is wound on the friction body at a certain speed and angle, the tension before and after the friction body is measured, and the friction coefficient is calculated according to Euler's formula.

    The µ-METER system can be effectively used for specific measurement requirements and also provides a flexible expansion platform.

    The samples can be tested quickly, accurately and reproducibly.

    Through the feedback of market information, the use of µ-METER can continuously improve the quality of products.
