Physicalization of existing measurement techniques

With the help of our new and improved physical models you can get more out of your conducted tests and thus, gain qualitative and quantitative advantage from conventional measurement techniques.

Evaluation of the complete stress field in the moment of failure
  • Organization of measurements that are appropriate for your product
  • Physical analysis of experimental data by using new models
    (e.g. "Pharr's effective indenter" for layered materials and curved surfaces)
  • Evaluation of forces (e.g. F0) which are critical for the first failure of a material.
  • Evaluation of the complete stress field in the moment of failure
  • We obtain the critical stress that is responsible for the failure in the material!

Test Instrument Acquisition

There are many mechanical surface measurement instruments with very different advantages and disadvantages on the market. Their evaluation according to your needs is a quite complex task which requires thorough knowledge in surface mechanics. Learn how we can help you with your test equipement decision!

Quality Assurance

Using certain surface measurement instruments (e.g. nanoindenter) in production for quality check has some significant advantages compared to other methods resulting in an increasing reliability of quality checks and therefore, in a reduction of the failure probability of your products. Since it is possible to fully automate not only the contact measurement but also their physical analysis, such contact measurements can be integrated in almost any production process. Thereby, a objective quality check can be ensured.

If you use measurement instruments with our subsequent physical evaluation not only in production for quality check purposes, but also in research & development to design and optimize surface structures, you will be able to support and establish, respectively a holistic quality management specifically.

Measurement & Analysis

In order to obtain meaningful and reliable information from measurements it is important to undertake a well-dimensioned measurement with a suitable measurement instrument on the one hand and, on the other hand, to physically evaluate such measurements. The primary objective is the extraction of generic material parameters. This is not only one of our core competences, but we are also world-wide leading in this field.
