Milli Tribometers

milli tribometersToday's technological advances in polymers, thinfilms and touch screens with low contact pressure, have created new challenges for Tribology.
In response to these challenges TRIBOtechnic has created a new and innovative tribometer called the Oscillating MILLI TRIBOtester PREMIUM, for friction measurement in a low contact pressure range.


  • The normal force is applied by a patented carbonfiber cantilever arm with an ultra sensitive frictionless cardan bearing system.

  • A sensor records variations of arm's displacement in order to calculate the friction coefficient. During friction test, minimal force sensor deflexion is in nanometer range.
