Scope of the bid : Purchase of a tribometer
For more information : AO 2014-10

Contact : Jeanne-Marie Granger (

Closing date: 15/11/2014

Main characteristics :

The apparatus should be able to:

  • Apply a normal force onto a sample.
  • Perform friction force, coefficient of friction measurements.

Technical specifications:

  • Pin-on-disc/ball-on disc configuration.
  • Force range should be between 1 to 30 N.
  • The wish displacement is linear in order to adapt to most of the substrates but a rotative displacement could be adapted on the device.
  • Coefficient of friction should be visualised in real time.
  • Device should fullfill ASTM G 99.
  • Device should be versatile in order to test several samples with different geometries.
  • Sample holder should be adapted to several geometries.

Optional :

  • Wear measurements could be performed
  • It could be possible to coat the pin/balls in order to measure the coefficient of friction between the two same coatings.
  • Others configurations could be adapted on the device: planar contact, cross cylinder…
  • Rotational displacement
  • Coefficient of friction could be measured with oil lubricant
