Product Name Notes
Instrumented Indentation Tester -- Bioindenter™ The BioindenterTM, BHT, is optimized to respond to the requirements of testing soft materials with non-planar surfaces (soft materials down to 1 kPa). The BHT is a modified...
Instrumented Indentation Tester -- High Temperature Nanoindentation (HT-UNHT) The High Temperature Nanoindentation tester (HT-UNHT) is a low-load nanomechanical test system for measuring the hardness and elastic modulus of thin films and coatings up to 700 °C. Patented UNHT...
Instrumented Indentation Tester -- Micro Indentation Tester (MHT³) The Microindentation Tester is ideally suited to the measurement of mechanical properties such as the hardness and elastic modulus of thin hard coatings, thick soft coatings and bulk materials such...
Instrumented Indentation Tester -- Nanoindentation (NHT³) The NHT3 is designed to provide low loads with depth measurements in the nanometer scale for the measurement of hardness, elastic modulus, creep, etc. The system can be used...
Revetest® Scratch Tester The Revetest® scratch tester is the industrial standard widely used for characterizing hard-coated materials with a typical coating thickness exceeding 1 μm. RST³ is a reliable instrument for the characterization...
Instrumented Indentation Tester -- Ultra Nanoindentation Tester (UNHT³) The UNHT, ultra-high resolution nanoindenter, is used to examine the mechanical properties of a material at the nanoscale. The UNHT virtually eliminates the effect of thermal drift and compliance due...
