Indentation and Scratch Tester
Nano, Micro Mechanical Testers for Research & Development and Industry

- Hardness, Modulus vs depth
- Scratch Adhesion
The Nano Indentation technique confirms to hardness testing ISO 14577. Various standard tips berkovich, cube corner, vickers can be mounted on the same head. The test produces hardness, modulus vs depth curves with ease. The nano indenter can be programmed to produce series of indents across one or multiple samples with ease.Scratch Test Head
Scratch adhesion test involves producing the scratches at progressively increasing or constant load on the test sample. The data allows to calculate adhesion, scratch hardness of sample. The head can mount several standard tips from few nm to several microns.
The platform comes with integrated imaging modules such as interferometer, AFM, confocal microscope, for 3D surface imaging on the platform without taking sample out of tool.
- 100x100x100 micron
- Sub nm resolution
- 5 million pixel
Antivibration table and enclosure
At nano scale testing, the ambient and floor noise plays an important role to determine test resolutions. To improve the performance, nano tribometer comes with acoustic enclosure and anti-vibration table.
Optional Tribometer Modules
The nano platform comes with optional nano tribometer modules. This allows to calculate friction, hardness and modulus of materials on same platform.
- Rotary, linear
Coatings, thin films, DLC, friction less coatings, lenses etc.
