Formerly called the Automatic Scratch Visibility software (ASV) or VSA, Tribometrics is our industry-leading machine-based scratch assessment and analysis tool.

Tribometrics closely mimics human visual systems to determine the onset of visibility of scratch and the apparent visibility of mars in a way that closely mimics relative qualitative assessments made by human observers of the same damage. The output of the software is significantly more reliable than a panel of trained human observers, while closely matching the assessment of the same observers. It is very fast, does not vary with fatigue or lighting conditions, and makes a permanent record of the analytical steps to reproduce the analysis.

Tribometrics provides a heads-up, interactive assessment of scratch damage correlated with the load information captured in real-time from the specimen tested. You can explore regions of the test by all collected data, extending the possible realm of analytical tools available to you.
