The Universal Wear Tester TF213 is a type of machine used to test the wear resistance of materials, including textiles, leather, and other materials. It is designed to simulate the wear that a material would experience in real-world use, by applying controlled amounts of pressure and friction to the test specimen.
The machine consists of several components, including a rotating platform, a test head, and a set of weights. The test specimen is mounted on the rotating platform, and the test head applies a specified load and rubbing motion to the specimen. The weights are used to adjust the pressure and rubbing force applied to the specimen.
During the test, the specimen is subjected to a specified number of rubbing cycles, and the amount of wear is measured by weighing the specimen before and after testing. The results are used to evaluate the material's durability and suitability for various applications.
The Universal Wear Tester TF213 is widely used in the textile and footwear industries, as well as in other industries that use materials that are subject to wear and tear. It is a recognized testing instrument that can help inform decisions about material selection, product development, and quality control.
