A comparison of results from experiments with a scratch tester and a pin-on-disk machine is presented. The test geometry was a ball sliding against a flat surface and the materials used were steel and alumina in different combinations. The wear surfaces indicated that for each combination of materials there was a typical principal wear mechanism operating in a similar way irrespective of the test method. The results show that the scratch tester can be useful for friction measurements simulating low speed sliding.
