Nanovea has now combined
their, PRVision, machine vision camera option to Nanoindentation testing that
allows auto-recognition of precisely chosen features with little to no user
The user-friendly software of Nanovea's PRVision allows for an automatic test
of hardness and elastic modulus on patterned samples or specifically chosen
areas of interest. Nanoindentation properties including hardness and elastic
modulus can then be automatically measured and recorded.
The "quasi non-destructive" low loads associated with Nanoindentation
Testing makes this technique an ideal breakthrough tool to monitor the quality
control of environments where hardness and elastic modulus are crucial: Micro
Electronics, Solar, Pharmaceuticals and many others.
Nanoindentation until now was performed using primitive mapping options. Our
PRVision option will speed up Nanoindentation testing and opens the door to
wide-scale automatic production quality control applications where hardness
and elastic modulus are the best control parameters.
