This paper presents theoretical and experimental studies that validate the structure of a program on the running-in of tribosystems, which consists of two modes. The maximum load below the seizure threshold is set in the first mode with the minimum sliding velocity. This mode is called the adaptation of the tribosystem to external conditions. The minimum load and maximum sliding velocity are set in the second mode. The transient characteristics are obtained for the tribosystem running-in, establishing the relationship between the tribosystem design, rational loading conditions, running-in time and running-in wear. The practical significance of the work is the minimization of the running-in time and wear for the running-in period.
