Scientific instruments like Tribometers are at the heart of Tribology research and product development. Solutions developed using these tribometers can improve the process efficiency in metal forming industry, achieve better fuel economy to reduce carbon emission and also contribute towards lowering the biomaterial associated infections. In this workshop organized by Ducom, we will discuss in detail about these solutions, by a panel of researchers from industries and academia. Furthermore, we all know that these solutions cannot be achieved without having Tribometers in the lab. In this regard, if you decide to buy Tribometers then what you should know? We will discuss this topic and share our experience on cost vs. value.
