Webinar Summary

Small-to-medium-size lubricant companies often do not have the capital, lab space, or staffing to run multiple single-use lubricant testers, which limits their potential to compete against larger firms with greater resources.

Yet these smaller companies are also often involved in the development of exciting new and specialized formulations which need qualification testing to meet strict lubricant testing standards. Currently, these companies rely on third-party resources to meet these needs, though working with an off-site lubricant testing laboratory can be costly and often adversely affects time and cost to market.

In this webinar, you will learn why the Bruker UMT TriboLab is an ideal platform to eliminate both the need for third-party lubricant testing provider involvement and the operational costs associated with it. Watch to discover how this benchtop multi-test lubricant testing platform can meet testing needs for:

  • R&D formulation development;
  • QA/QC;
  • Application-specific lubricant testing; and
  • Component-level lubricant testing.

Moreover, with its expandable platform, the UMT TriboLab's capabilities can grow along with your company.
