Large area mechanical tester

Designed with unique advanced technologies, PB1000 systems offer the highest accuracy and repeatability with the widest range of measurement capabilities on large sample surface.

With several test modes, they allow real control of the load and implantation depths, thus giving access to different material parameters. Measurements also possible under different environmental constraints (temperature, humidity, corrosion, etc.)

Nano/micro Indentation:

- Hardness and Elastic modulus(Young's modulus)
- Fracture toughness (Rm)
- Yield point and fatigue
- Creep and relaxation
- Stress vs strain
- Loss and storage modulus


- Cohesive/adhesive failure
- Multi-pass wear
- Coefficient of friction


- Temperature scratch hardness test
- Multi-phase metallic nanoindentation
- Mapping by microindentations of ceramics
- Compression resistance test
- Characterization of spring constants
- Viscoelastic analysis of polymers
