The T50 tribometer from Nanovea is designed to deliver cutting edge pin on disc tribology in a compact and affordable benchtop design.
With a variety of modular test and environmental configurations available up to loads of 50N (optionally 60N) the T50 has been designed with flexibility in mind.
Robust, low maintenance and easy to use with minimal requirements for calibration.
Nanovea Inc are based in Irvine, a tech hub of Southern California. They have been redefining standards in quality control and materials development internationally for over a decade. Nanovea’s instruments can be found in renowned education and industrial organisations around the world.
The T50 is truly modular meaning you can start with test and environmental modules or easily add them later. There is no need to buy more than one tribometer for different tests and conditions because all can be completed on one T50.
The T50 uses free weights to apply a load of up to 50N (optionally 60N) onto the sample. This is a robust, simple and cost effective way of applying the load and ideal for where budgets are limited.

Nanovea regularly document and publish work using their tribometers. We keep many of these resources on our website in the form of application notes or publications. These are a great way to learn more about what can be achieved with a Nanovea tribometer.
