BRUKER UMT TRIBOLAB

Mechanical testing over a wide range of temperature, pressure, and reactivity. 


USES/APPLICATIONS

The main application is for tribocorrosion research such as metal implants performance and new alloy for implants. 


DETAILED DESCRIPTION

With its exceptional modularity, within minutes this platform can be transformed from rotary to reciprocating motion, from sub-newton to kilo-newton force measurement, or from room temperature up to 1000°C for environmental testing.

Other features, such as tool-less drive changeover and patented chip identification functionality for all electrical components, make this equipment simple and efficient.
