    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. 

    MFT-2000 Tribometer Features

    Wide range allows the tribometer to run several standard and non standard tests on the 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 1000 °C 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.
