New nanoindenter installed

Early in the year, the Department of Materials Analysis of our company acquired a NanoTest Vantage nanoindenter which offers the following features.

  • Load range: from 10 μN to 500 mN (resolution: 3 nN)
  • Experimental constant-force or constant-displacement measurement
  • Evaluation of elastic-plastic behaviour of materials
  • Measurement of hardness and elastic modulus
  • Noise-damping enclosure, controlled temperature in the working space
  • Testing in accordance with ISO 14577 1-4
