print-friendly page Pin & Vee Block Tester
The Falex Pin & Vee Block Test Machine is a laboratory tool for evaluating wear, friction and extreme pressure properties of materials and lubricants. The equipment rotates a ¼ inch diameter test pin against two ½ inch diameter vee blocks. A four line contact is established as load is applied through a mechanical gage by a ratchet wheel and an eccentric arm.
The Falex Pin & Vee Block Test Machine is available in
manual, digital or computer controlled configuration.
