TI 950 TriboIndenter®

The World's Most Comprehensive and Quantitative Nanomechanical Test Instrument

The TI 950 TriboIndenter nanoindenter has been developed as an automated, high throughput instrument to support the numerous nanomechanical and nanotribological characterization techniques developed by Hysitron. The TI 950 nanoindenter system incorporates the powerful performech® I Advanced Control Module, which greatly improves the precision of feedback-controlled nanomechanical testing, provides dual head testing capability for nano/micro scale connectivity, and offers unprecedented noise floor performance. The numerous nanomechanical testing techniques offered by Hysitron, as well as new testing methods currently being developed, make the TI 950 TriboIndenter an extremely versatile and effective nanomechanical characterization tool for the broadest range of applications.

TI 950 TriboIndenter Features

  • Patented capacitive transducer technology provides unprecedented measurement sensitivity (<30nN, <0.2nm), accuracy, and reliability during the nanoindentation process
  • Ultra sensitive force and displacement noise floors (<2nN, <0.02nm) when equipped with xProbe transducer technology
  • Supports full suite of current and future Hysitron testing techniques, making the TI 950 the most versatile nanomechanical testing system in the market
  • High resolution in-situ SPM imaging for precise test positioning accuracy and rapid observation of post-test deformation behavior
  • High speed feedback control algorithms enabled by the performech I Advanced Control Module provides superior control over the testing and data acquisition process
  • Seamless dual-head testing capability for true nano/micro scale connectivity
  • Automated sample staging and testing routines provide fast sample throughput
  • Custom engineered enclosure and active anti-vibration system delivers exceptional environmental stability for reliable nanoscale characterization
  • Two dimensional capacitive transducer technology enables ultra-thin film tribological and interfacial adhesion characterization

Quantify the Unknown at the Nanoscale

Hysitron’s flagship TI 950 Nanomechanical Test Instrument was specifically designed to enable comprehensive mechanical and tribological characterization over the nano and microscales. Our diverse offering of complimentary techniques available on the TI 950 nanoindenter enables a greater understanding of nanomechanical and nanotribological properties on any classification of material. Whether you need to measure elastic-plastic properties of individual microstructures of traditional materials and thin films, viscoelastic properties of soft matter, interfacial adhesion of ultra-thin films, or temperature-dependent properties up to 800°C, the TI 950 TriboIndenter will enable your continued materials research at a scale previously unimaginable.
