This test machine is the answer to the emerging requirements of today's tribology research and development.
It is designed with light loading conditions and high precision in mind.

Load ranges from 10 N down to mN range, friction can be measured with a 1/10.000 resolution (down to microNewton).

Positioning of sensitive or small samples, elevated temperature functionality.
Programmable sequences make the instrument highly efficient and versatile.
Linear reciprocating and rotating motors.

Wide range of contact pressures, thanks to wide range of line and point contacts.
ASTM G99 for light loads adapted.

*temporarily discontinued test machine, rebuild in 2021 for rotating and reciprocating motions.  ask for more information if you are interested to acquire this instrument
