InnovaTorr is the proud distributor of TRIBOtechnic in Canada, a french company with over 35 years of experience in the fields of tribology and micro-mechanics as well as the manufacturing of instruments such as: Tribometers for the measurement of friction and wear resistance; Scratch testers for adherence characterization and scratch resistance measurement; and Calotesters for rapid thickness measurement of thin hard coatings. 

TRIBOTECHNIC'S PRODUCT LINE

MACRO, MICRO AND NANO PIN-ON-DISC AND OSCILLATING TRIBOMETERS

To meet today’s requirements in tribology and new technological advances, TRIBOtechnic has developed a wide line of reliable and user-friendly tribometers with exchangeable pin-on-disk and linear modules, diverse build-up options after purchase and the most precise measurement results in the range of loads from 0,001 to 200 N, including in a low contact range. To provide the best solution for the measurement of wear resistance, TRIBOtechnic supplies a Profilometer equipped with a skidless tracer and internal reference.

Multifunction Calotester

TRIBOtechnic’s calotester is fully equipped with all items needed for measuring thickness of coatings at your fingertips: programmed spherical abrasion controlled by microprocessor; microscope for measurement of abraded coatings and a calculator to supply the results of thickness automatically. A wide range of options is available to build up after the time of purchase. TRIBOtechnic’s calotester is the only one on the market which allows conducting tests on the same machine for both laboratory samples and big industrial parts.

Applications:

  • PVD and CVD coatings
  • Sputtering, ion plating
  • Evaporation in vacuum
  • Anodic oxidation
  • Galvanized coatings
  • Chemical coatings
