Equipment – Tribology


Some examples of our equipment to investigate friction and wear behaviour of different friction couples.

3D-profilometer    100m-NLGI2E50x

We use a 3D-Profilometer to observe solid surfaces.


An optical microscope is used for the investigation of grease structure



Nano-Tribometer for friction measurements (lubricated and dry contacts). F.e. we can realise very low normal forces (mN).

Tribometer  kugel-scheibe2

Ball on disc apparatus to investigate lubricated contacts. Max. normal force: 20N (p=1,6 GPa)



Ball on disc apparatus with oscillating motion (friction force measurement)



Ball on disc apparatus for normal forces up to 5N (friction force measurement)
