NanoTest Vantage – Nanoindenter for high-temperature applications

Fig. 1: Schematic of the patented high-temperature system design. Heat rises, but thanks to horizontal loading design, this has no impact on the depth measurement sensors.
Fig. 2: Active heating of the indenter tip. Without active and separate tip heating, heat flow between sample and indenter tip cannot be avoided.

Subjecting materials to high tempera­tures often leads to significant changes in their mechanic properties. Espe­cially in aeronautics there is a wide array of applications in the array above 400 °C and for wear protective coatings.

In more than 10 years, Micro Materials has gained substantial know-how, through the close cooperation with leading scientists, to develop market-leading nano and micro mechanical test platforms for high-temperature measurements up to 750 °C. Key features of this measurement system are the inherent thermal stability and its unrivaled design. 

A listing of all publications on high-temperature nano-indentation at the end of 2013 showed that all relevant data was measured in a temperature range above 400 °C with NanoTest systems.

Thus NanoTest Vantage is the system of choice for all researchers and scientists who perform nano mechanical and tribological examinations on materials and coatings at elevated temperatures.
