Home > Press > CETR introduces NEW Nanoindenter and Scratcher - APEX

Abstract:
CETR announced this week the launch of its newest test instrumentation - "Apex".

Apex is the next generation nano-mechanical test instrument providing industry-leading sensitivity, control and unmatched performance. The tool comes with two interchangeable modules - Nano indenter (NH-3) and Micro indenter (MH-2). The modules can be easily interchanged for Nano and Micro range mechanical tests.

CETR introduces NEW Nanoindenter and Scratcher - APEX

Campbell, CA | Posted on March 3rd, 2009

Optional imaging modules include integrated AFM, 3D Profiler and a High magnification optical microscope. They image the sample immediately after the test without its removal.

Both NH-3 and MH-2 modules can be used to indent (to measure hardness, Young's modulus, Von Mises Stress, etc.) or scratch the material (to do scratch adhesion, scratch-hardness) as well as wear and friction at nano and micro scales.

Apex has been designed for thin-films, pvd & cvd coatings, hard coatings, microelectronics, magnetic and optical media, solar cells, MEMS, bio-films, etc. The tool comes with numerous useful features such as a large library of standards for calculating material properties, user defined algorithm and models, customized programmable recipes, advanced statistical analysis software for comprehensive fundamental materials research.

CETR has already shipped the first two units; one to a leading university in Asia and other to a famous academic institute in Europe.

About CETR
CETR is a privately held California corporation located in the heart of Silicon Valley in Campbell, California. It was founded by Dr. Norm V. Gitis at the end of 1993 to perform failure analysis, qualification, mechanical and tribology testing of various materials, coatings and their interfaces. Since that, CETR has been a phenomenal success and has grown from a small testing lab to a world-leading designer and manufacturer of materials and tribology test equipment with a highly-professional staff of several dozens of engineers and technicians.

CETR has developed a strong customer base all over the world, about a third of it in Americas (US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, etc.), a third in Asia (China, Japan, India, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, etc.) and a third in Europe (Germany, England, Italy, France, Switzerland, Russia, etc.).

The continuous success of CETR products is due to its unique leading-edge technologies, including the proprietary multi-sensing technology with high-sample-rate data-acquisition hardware and software, highest-accuracy force sensors and amplifiers, high-frequency acoustic emission sensors and amplifiers, etc. Its products can perform multitudes of operations to characterize nano, micro and macro mechanical and tribological properties under harsh environmental conditions (high and low temperatures and humidity, vacuum, gases, etc), and have become the unwritten standard for both multiple industries and basic research. They have been successfully utilized in numerous academic labs for fundamental materials research and some important breakthroughs in studies of thin films, as well as in numerous factories for quality control of ink-jet cartridges, razor blades, industrial oils and many other important products.
