Understanding and controlling friction and wear

Tribology Testing

Applying the science of interacting surfaces to improve product performance, life, and reliability.

Bruker's tribometers use servo motor control for increased accuracy and combine all common test schematics into singular platforms. A modular design enables measurements of numerous tribological and mechanical properties of any material on the same tester.

By simply replacing components, within a matter of minutes users can alternate between reciprocating and rotating motion, from pin-on-disk to block-on-ring or any of a number of ASTM, DIN or ISO standard tests. Unlike other instruments in this class, Bruker's CETR-UMT is capable of highly accurate loading and custom motion patterns through the use of precision servo-control.
