The MFT5000 from Rtec-Instruments are tribology and mechanical testers for research, development, and industry. It integrates mechanical, tribological, and surface properties of materials for a unique viewpoint in testing.
It is the most versatile system in the market with a modular concept that offers unique functionality for the users’ specific requirements.
Ultra high data acquisition
Closed loop down force control
Integrated imaging options like the confocal microscope, interferometer, AFM, Raman, and more.
Nano to macro range
Mix and match module as per need
Easy to incorporate new modules in future
Perform many ISO, ASTM, DIN tests
Nano nN to 3000 mN, Micro 3000 mN to 30N, Macro up to 10000 N (more ranges available).
Interchangeable modules on same platform
XYZ motion is standard. Extra modules can be easily mounted and swapped.
The module is mounted on XY Stage. Tests including Pin on Disk, Ball on Disk can be performed.
The module is mounted on XY Stage. Tests including Pin on plate, Ball on plate, and Linear Wear Test can be performed.
Block on Ring
The module is mounted on XY Stage. Rings, seals, shafts, and more can be tested.
Upper sample is rotated which can be used with Z motion.
4Ball, Tapping, Drilling, Twist Compression
Integrated Inline Imaging
Topography, Wear Volume, Roughness, 3D image, Surface change over time.
The tribometer comes with integrated imaging modules such as interferometer, AFM, Raman confocal microscope, for sub-nm resolution, 3D surface imaging on the platform without taking the sample out of the tool.
Temperature, high pressure, humidity, vacuum, and tribo corrosion chambers
The standard configuration has X, Y, Z as well as an add-on interchangeable motion axis drive. This unique multi-axis drive combination allows creation of any custom motion to mimic testing conditions close to real life situation.
The modules are easy to swap. The clamps allow swapping the modules without requiring any extra tools.
MFT Platform offers a broad variety and range of sensors including: 1D Force, 2D Force, Torque sensor, 6D Sensor, Electrical Contact Resistance, Capacitance displacement sensors, Acoustic Emission, Potentiostat, and more.
