Home > Press > Nanomechanics, Inc. Unveils New Product at ICMCTF Show April 25th: Nanoindentation experts will launch the new Gemini that measures the interaction of two objects that are sliding across each other – not merely making contact

Abstract:
Nanomechanics Inc., will showcase its unique new nanoindentation product at booth 315, at the 44th annual International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) with special appearances from company president and international nanoindentation expert, Warren Oliver, Ph.D. The 44th annual meeting of ICMCTF will be held April 25-27, in San Diego at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center.

Nanomechanics, Inc. Unveils New Product at ICMCTF Show April 25th: Nanoindentation experts will launch the new Gemini that measures the interaction of two objects that are sliding across each other – not merely making contact

Oak Ridge, TN | Posted on April 21st, 2017

The new Gemini system from Nanomechanics, Inc., is the world’s first commercial, isometric multi-dimensional instrument for studying the dynamics of tribology and mechanical testing at the nano-scale. The device can measure the interaction of two objects that are sliding across each other – not merely making contact.

“Just like nanoindentation was a leap forward, the Gemini is a leap forward for any scratch, wear or collision experiment that has been done before,” said Oliver. “It is taking all the technology we’ve developed to do the experiments better and now we’ve made it possible to test in both directions simultaneously.”

The Gemini can measure:
· Wear
· Thin film strength
· Adhesion of films
· elastic properties

“There are a lot of different applications where you need to be able to effectively apply a very small load not just in the normal direction but in any direction you want to,” Said Oliver. “We now have the ability to get these measurements with this instrument.”


The resolution, force range and dynamic performance made possible by Gemini’s isometric axes means both normal and lateral axes deliver the renowned exactness expected from Nanomechanics, Inc. Products tested by this device include any film product, decorative or wear resistant, multiphase materials, coatings and paint.

“Nanomechanics, Inc. is currently studying with the Gemini things that involve the sliding of two bodies by one another,” said Oliver. “That is where you have to apply normal force and lateral force – everything from the way a particle in a car wash scratches the paint of the car to earthquakes.”
