The Most Versatile Tribology System Ever Designed
Comprehensive materials testing for mechanical and triobological properties
Bruker’s Universal Mechanical Tester (UMT) platform has been the most versatile and widely used tribometer on the market since the first model debuted in 2000. Now, newly designed from the ground up, the UMT TriboLab™ builds on that legacy of versatility with a unique modular concept that harnesses more functionality than ever before—all without any compromise in performance.
In fact, the UMT TriboLab offers higher speeds, more torque, and better force measurement than any of its predecessors or competitors, plus it introduces powerful new features for improved efficiency and ease-of-use. TriboLab can perform practically every common tribological test on nano and micro scales. Due to its range of testing abilities and multiple possible configurations, it is used extensively across a wide variety of industries, including biomedical, microelectronics, paper, and coatings, and throughout common industrial processes in petroleum, aerospace, automobile, engine, bearing, and fastener manufacturing.
