CSM Instruments covers a broad spectrum of Surface Mechanical Characterization.
For Hardness and Elastic modulus analysis, CSM Indentation Testers are available in micro and nanometer scale. Full automation together with optical observation make the Indentation Tester the ideal instrument for the characterization of thin films.
Characterizing coating adhesion, fracture and deformation, CSM Scratch Tester can be used in the macro, micro or nanometer range. The Scratch Tester is widely used in industry for the qualitative measurement.
