Company History

Tribosonics Ltd was started in 2006 by Dr Phil Harper based on research he conducted at the University of Sheffield. The company was originally set up to provide a lubricant film thickness measurement service but has now diversified into a wide range of applications all involving the use of ultrasonics. We currently manufacture, supply and install high end ultrasonic measurement systems to some of the biggest engineering organisations worldwide. The name Tribosonics comes from the combination of Tribology and Ultrasonics. Tribology is the study of friction, wear and lubrication and comes from the Greek ‘tribos’ meaning rubbing. Ultrasonic techniques have been used for many years as a non-destructive technique for analysing and monitoring mechanical components. Tribosonics is the combination of these areas of engineering to develop a set of powerful techniques for monitoring, measuring and investigating a wide range of real world engineering applications.
