This device is capable of calculating scratch coefficient of friction, a physical quantity directly related to surface damage, which can help in clarifying the structure of a scratch.
This feature can be used to perform initial configured testing and ultimate load indentation testing. Performing these tests prior to actual testing allows the load range to be set quickly.
Even for samples with an uneven surface that make scratch evaluation difficult, such as textured surfaces, this feature makes testing possible without compromising linear load increase capabilities.
