Our Mechanical Testing Product Range

Micro Materials is constantly developing and refining equipment that consistently sets new benchmarks for performance and adaptability.

The current product range continues that tradition of innovation and functionality. From single-test instruments to multi-functional vacuum systems, we have solutions to suit a wide range of applications and budgets.

NanoTest Vantage Nanomechanics Nanoindenter Mechanical testing

The NanoTest Vantage

The NanoTest Vantage is our flagship system. A multi-functional, multi-scale and multi-environment nano-mechanical testing instrument. The NanoTest Vantage is a fully modular system that allows the user to configure the system to meet their individual needs. The system can be expanded at a later date to include further modules, meaning that your system can evolve as your needs/research interests change.

The NanoTest Alpha

The NanoTest Alpha cleverly combines multiple nanomechanical and tribological test techniques and multiple environments in a single, affordable instrument to provide the most cost-effective, reliable solution on the market today. Keeping all of the measurement accuracy and precision of the flagship Vantage system, the Alpha allows entry into the range at a lower price point with the option to upgrade in coming years as research needs develop.

NanoTest Xtreme Nanomechanics Nanoindenter Mechanical testing

The NanoTest Xtreme

Researchers are increasingly demanding that test conditions closely mimic real-world environments in order to provide the most reliable, accurate prediction of properties. With the NanoTest Vantage, Micro Materials already offers the most comprehensive range of nano-mechanical test options. These are now further extended with the Xtreme, which provides a vacuum environment testing from -100 to 1000 °C without oxidation or frosting of samples.
