NANOVEA Nano/Micro Hardness & Scratch Tester

NANOVEA Nano/Micro Hardness & Scratch Tester

This system can be used for microscopic and nanoscopic hardness and scratch testing and can be used to determine hardness, young’s modulus, and creep information about materials, protective coatings, and thin films. METLAB uses this machine for both research and testing for our clients. Contact us to discuss your project by email or phone: 605-688-4300
