Imprintec GmbH
Material Testing Solutions

The company Imprintec – Material Testing Solutions is active in the field of mechanical materials testing and offers innovative strength and hardness testing equipment for quality assurance and optimization. The focus is on the indentation method according to DIN SPEC 4864, which is a combination of mechanical and optical testing. Further hardness testing methods complete the range of services with regard to the precise testing of samples and components.

Furthermore, Imprintec sees itself as a service provider for tests according to the indentation method and standard-compliant hardness tests. With the help of these tests we carry out, among other things, damage analyses, component testing and evaluation and weld seam examinations on large and small components up to layers.

06 - 2018

Completion i3D Test

Completion of the testing machine i3DTest to perform the indentation method and other conventional hardness testing methods.


Further development

A conception of a testing machine was started. Furthermore, the accuracy of the material testing methodology for all materials under consideration is constantly being increased, as the corresponding simulation bases and calculation methods have been improved and will continue to be improved.


Foundation of the company

The company Imprintec - Material Testing Solutions was founded. Different services in the field of material testing are offered.



New ground is being broken in test engineering. A patent application for the new method as a process for materials testing was filed.


Research work

Fundamental research work on the determination of material properties on the nanoscale and microscale has begun. Properties of different metallic single and multicrystals have been determined with the help of a new testing method, which basic properties are based on hardness testing.
