Multi Function Tribometer MFT-2000

A modular compact tribometer for essential friction, wear and mechanical properties analysis. Multi Function Tribometer MFT-2000 is a versatile and technologically advanced benchtop tribometer for essential mechanical, scratch, and tribological characterisation. An open platform architecture design for ease of use. Fully automated test programs and advanced controllers allow for high repeatability and precision measurements. The servo control load patented multi-dimension force sensors and XY stage allows MFT-2000 allows to run several tests covering scratch, tribology, wear, mechanical tests, and profilometry on the same platform.


Rtec Instruments

Rtec Instruments develops and manufactures advanced mechanical and surface testing and measurement solutions for research and industrial applications. They specialise in combining techniques that provide a unique perspective in material testing. Their testers include tribometer, profilometer, scratch tester, high-temperature indenter, and corrosion testers. Furthermore, their testers provide the most robust and versatile platform in the market for testing friction, wear, adhesion, hardness, roughness, and film thickness from nano to macro-scale.

Key Features

  • Servo control down force control
  • Up to 1000 °C
  • Modular with both linear and rotary motions
  • Wide load range mN to 100N depending on the configuration
  • Inline Inspection with an integrated 3D profilometer

A Compact Tribometer Like No Other

Customisable For Your Needs:

  • A: Modular Platform - Open platform designed for ease of use and easy access
  • B: Lower Interchangeable Test Module - Interchangeable fast-exchange test modules perform several tests on same platform – rotary reciprocating
  • C: Force Sensor - Various two dimension high resolution real time friction and down force sensors up to 100 N
  • D: XY stage - High precision linear XY stage to change test radius automatically and allows for integrated 3d profilometer


Interchangeable Modules

Multiple modules can be added on top of the XY stage:

Linear reciprocating tribometer wear, pin on plate etc.

Pin on disk tribometer, ball on disk tribometer etc. up to 5000 RPM


Wide range allows the tribometer to run several standard and non standard tests on same platform:

Down Force Control
Real time force control during the test. The test can run at constant or changing load.

Temperature Control
Up to 1000 °C temperature chambers. Close loop temperature control during the test.

2 dimensional patented sensors to produce repeated data at high resolution.

In-line Inspection
Patented inline 3D optical profilometer to look at surface change vs time or test with nm resolution

Comes with our widely used operation and data analysis package software.

Rotary and Linear Modes
Easy to move between rotary and linear modules using fast exchange mechanism.
