Force Sensor

Various two dimension high resolution real time friction and down force sensors up to 100 N.

XY stage

High precision linear XY stage to change test radius automatically and allows for integrated 3d profilometer

Interchangeable Modules

Multiple modules can be added on top of the XY stage:


Pin on disk tribometer, ball on disk tribometer etc. up to 5000 RPM


Linear reciprocating tribometer wear, pin on plate etc. 


Wide range allows the tribometer to run several standard and non standard tests on same platform
Down Force Control

Real time force control during the test. The test can run at constant or changing load.

Temperature Control

Up to 500C temperature chambers. Close loop temperature control during the test.


2 dimensional patented sensors to produce repeated data at high resolution.

In-line Inspection

Patented inline 3D optical profilometer to look at surface change vs time or test with nm resolution


Comes with our widely used operation and data analysis package software.

Rotary and Linear Modes

Easy to move between rotary and linear modules using fast exchange mechanism.
