Mini Traction Machine

The Mini Traction Machine module measures the frictional properties of lubricated  contacts using our ball-on-disc  Tribometers. Each machine performs a wide range of rolling and sliding conditions. One-click operation, wide load, speed, and temperature range make it ideal for lubricant quality control or sustainability research.

    Lubricant Analysis You Can Rely On

    Investigating the friction and wear properties of lubricants, oil, and additives is essential to optimize lubricant efficiency, reduce wear, and enhance product durability. Quickly measure the force between the two contacts and record results automatically. The lubricant test profile includes the range of speeds, temperatures, and loads. Data is displayed in real-time and provides in-depth analysis and comparison between samples.
