Micro Materials are proud to work with a long-established network of global distributors. Many of these distributors have worked with MML for 15 years or more and have excellent technical knowledge of the system.
Existing customer base
MML have over 350 systems worldwide, with many centres having multiple systems. Micro Materials work with the most prestigious groups in academic and industrial research. Including Cambridge University, MIT, Oxford University, SIMTech, GM, and Siemens. MML endeavour to establish close collaborative links with our customers which allows the company to respond quickly to market requirements and emerging research areas.
Evolution of the NanoTest system
The first NanoTest was sold in 1992 to a group in Paris. Since then many generations of instrument have developed, including the NanoTest 300, NanoTest 550 and NanoTest 600. In 2006 the NanoTest NTX was released, which saw a large improvement in system performance and stability. The new NanoTest Vantage provides the user with a simplified, high performance, modern instrument. Designed to be easy to use yet flexible to allow high level experiment design.
A leading international innovator in the highly specialised world of nanomechanical testing for over 30 years. Constantly developing and refining equipment that has consistently set new benchmarks for performance and adaptability.
The NanoTest Vantage continues that tradition of innovation and functionality. Laboratory equipment has to constantly justify its outlay so we design equipment that is not only robust, reliable and highly accurate, but also performs a wide range of roles. This flexibility continues to set the NanoTest apart from other systems on the market.
Improvements brought by the NanoTest Vantage have focussed on four key areas:
- Improved ease of use
- Increased speed of set up, calibration and training
- Improved system performance
- System robustness
High turnover of users is often a reality in a research setting so instruments must be easy to understand and use. This is fully addressed by the Vantage.
Micro Materials focus on listening to their customers and developing solutions to push the boundaries of nanomechanical testing. Aiming to maintain an imaginative development programme to offer the market something unique. Providing the customer with first class service and fostering a user community rather than just grow a user base.
The MML staff group consists of physicists, mechanical engineers, materials scientists and chemists, together with administration and finance teams. Staff turnover is extremely low, ensuring continuity of quality in processes and instruments.
