An LCD operator touch screen enhances user experience with an easy-to-use interface.
Taber’s Rotary Platform Abraser is used to evaluate a material’s resistance to wear by testing coated surfaces, plastics, textiles, metals, leather, rubber and many other materials. The unit is available with a single (Model 1700) or dual turntable (Model 1750). According to the company, the reengineered housing has an LCD operator touch screen to enhance the user experience by providing an easy-to-use interface with features such as abrader status, visual reference of test complete, cycles/time toggle (complete or remaining), pause interval and more.

The model 1700/1750 is said to include a precision-machined, cast aluminum support frame that incorporates alignment pins to ensure exact arm placement in relation to the specimen holder. Compact abraser arm assemblies are individually calibrated and include wave springs designed to reduce clearance in the bearing assemblies. Push-button quick release wheel mounting hubs include an expanding collet and spring loaded, beveled retaining nut that provides a positive locking force on the hub-retaining lip to keep the abrading wheels securely fastened until disengaged.
Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.
