Laboratory of Tribotechnology
Contact person: RNDr. Pavol Hvizdoš, CSc., email@example.com, IMR SAS
Location: Materials Science Building, Watsonova 47/A, Košice
The Laboratory is dedicated to the research of the tribological properties (friction coefficients, abrasion, deformation mechanisms, abrasion resistance, phase changes in mechanical contact) of different classes of materials and coatings. It is based on the basic research needs as well as on the requirements of applied research for potential industrial partners. This implies that the testing can be performed at different load / contact levels, from the micro load (mN load) through the intermediate level (in the order of several N) to the higher loads (hundred N), all with different configurations of contact areas/bodies and their mutual movements.
