The Most Versatile Tribology System Ever Designed
ASTM D6079,

								ASTM D6079, 

Designed for novice to expert levels

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 TriboLabTM 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.
