Our patented, state-of-the-art transducer technology is the heart of the instrument and was developed specifically for nanoindentation work. It provides the highest precision quantitative results and offers the broadest range of any alternative instrument. Our instruments deliver the highest sensitivity and the lowest force available for soft sample and ultra-thin film testing.
Hysitron instruments are designed for high sample throughput, require minimum equilibration time, and offer easy sample handling. Our instruments are engineered for maximum up time and are ready to run after the first hour of installation. Instrument purchase includes customer support, installation and the first year warranty.
The unique ability for Hysitron systems to perform rigid probe nanoindentation (with the patented three-plate capacitive design) in combination with in-situ SPM imaging has proven Hysitron to be the leader in the nanomechanics community.
