Milli Tribometer

milli tribotester

Today'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.
