The Comprehensive Nanomechanical Testing Centre that’s now smarter, faster and even more flexible
In 2011 the comprehensive nanomechanical testing centre was optimised in terms of performance, speed of output and ease of use. Since then it runs smarter, faster and even more flexible.
2. Speed of throughput
3. Ease of use
With the NanoTest Vantage system, Micro Materials Ltd. offers a universal platform for different methods to characterize the mechanical properties of surfaces and thin films. The modularity of the system allows to combine all the measurement modules or to tailor the system according dedicated applications.
The new base frame made of rigid ceramic together with new, high resolution electronics, provides even more precise measurements with highest load and displacement resolution at lowest drift rate. High precise measurements can be performed much faster than before. Uniquely for such kind of instruments.
Two loading heads alternatively or in combination features nano and micro hardness testing. The special pendulum design, provides full modularity and excellent performance, as well as full ISO 14577 and ASTM 2546 compliant. The NanoTest has the lowest drift rate of all instruments in the market, either at room temperature or at elevated temperature, which allows to apply a wide range of loading rates during indentation for very slow or fast loading.
The NanoTest system includes and serves the following methods and applications:
Controlled environmental conditions to assess true ‘in-service’ properties
