Scitech  introduces the Nanovea range of mechanical testers providing unmatched multifunction Nano, Micro or Macro modules on a single platform.
An ideal solution for determining the full range of mechanical properties of thin or thick, soft or hard coatings, films and substrates, Nanovea mechanical testers have a wide application range from low loads to measure hardness and elastic modulus of biomaterials to high loads required to test the fracture toughness of hard coatings in the tooling industry.
The Nano, Micro and Macro modules include ISO and ASTM compliant indentation, scratch and wear tester modes providing an extremely wide and user-friendly range of mechanical testing capabilities on a single module.
Nanovea indentation, scratch and wear tester modes use independent force and depth sensors to obtain depth versus load curves during indentation, plastic and elastic deformation during scratch testing, and friction coefficient and wear rate during pin-on-disk or linear wear testing. Additionally, force feedback controlled loops ensure high precision load control during indentation, scratch and wear tester modes.
Both the Nanovea Platform and Compact Bases have been designed with versatility in mind to allow either the Nano module up to 400mN or Micro or Macro module from 40N to 200N.
Several optical imaging options including 3D non-contact profiler and AFM module are available for high resolution 3D imaging of indentation, scratch and wear track in addition to other surface measurements such as roughness. Image pattern recognition is now a breakthrough software option on both the Nano and Micro modules to allow automated indentation testing for quality control use (Nanovea PRVision). Additional options include rotational table and heating module.
An anti-vibration table is recommended for nano metric level tests. An ideal option for strict environment mechanical testing, the Ergonomic Workstation integrates a high quality air table in addition to attached flexible arms for both the keyboard and the monitor. A Plexiglas enclosure, independently supported by the table protects against air movement and sound waves.
