The TRIBOTOUCH uses state of the art technology to accurately reproducing the real life abrasion caused by the human hand.

The design of TRIBOTOUCH combines ease of use, functionality and appealing visual appearance.

Dynamic Linear Motor

The TRIBOTOUCH is using a highly dynamic true linear motor for accurate motion control over the whole life time.
Old fashioned instruments on the market using low cost pneumatic drives with no motion control and therefore, poor reproducibility.

Large Touch-Monitor

The intuitively designed menu navigation based on pictographs makes the TRIBOTOUCH easy to use even without consulting the user manual.

Laser Markierung

The point of contact is clearly indicated by a laser beam.

Accurate Positioning

The TRIBOTOUCH is equipped with sensors for accurate and consistent positioning. Accurate control of the contact point is needed for reproducible test results.

X/Y/Z Linear Tables

The TRIBOTOUCH is equipped with accurate x/y/z linear tables for the positioning of the test samples. The hand wheel increases the speed and comfort of the positioning.

Linear Textile Feed

The textile supply is on rolls. The design allows accurate textile feed from the first to the last centimeter of the roll.

Automatic Textile Rewind

Used textile is automatically wound up. The textile rewinding includes a constant counterweight by means of a rocker. Automatic textile rewinding is perfect for long term tests without supervision.

Multi Nozzle Wetting

The specially designed multi nozzle wetting system applies the fluid in a defined way homogeneously on the textile. This system improves the reproducibility of the test compared to other systems.

Temperature tests

The TRIBOTOUCH-Clime is designed for the temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. The test unit is very compact and fits into most standard climatic chambers.



The TRIBOTOUCH and TRIBOTOUCH Clime share the same technology and options. To find the right equipment, you only need to decide if temperature testing in a climate chamber is required or not.

The TRIBOTOUCH is suitable for all test requirements ranging from standard hand abrasion tests to touch display tests and high speed shoe sole tests. One instrument for all tests! (No version A, B, C, D, ...)


NOTE: The TRIBOTOUCH (current and previous version) and the TRIBOTOUCH Clime share the same test setup and accordingly provide the same test results.
