Application specific solutions

Rtec Instruments’ Universal Tribometer contains versatility and modularity that provide several tribological and mechanical testing solutions for various industries. Today it is widely used to measure friction coefficient across lubricant, grease, bio, automobile, semiconductor, aerospace, materials, ceramics, space industries, and more. To get correct friction force, it is important to conduct experiments in conditions close to the real application. The Universal Tribometer provides custom motions, wide load range, customized holders and drives to generate meaningful data with ease.
