next generation
material testing

Compact device for the determination of mechanical parameters, flow curves and hardness according to DIN SPEC 4864

With the testing machine i3D WLI you will receive within a few seconds:
  • Flow curve
  • Yield strengthRIp0.2
  • Tensile strength RIm
  • Hardness value (also for uneven surfaces)
  • Anisotropy (qualitative)

Fast and precise measurement

The indentation method uses modern algorithms and FEM simulations to determine the local material properties. For the determination of the properties, a test indentation is generated in a force-controlled manner. An electronic force control is used for this. This is then measured with the aid of a white light interferometer. An efficient mechanism ensures a fast measurement process.

Applications from practice

The i3Dtesting software

Full control and simple operation Measuring points can be set individually or by grid*. The test sequence is fully automatic with continuous progress display.

The archiving of the results and the creation of test reports is done automatically. In addition, the flow curves can be exported with the respective location coordinates. In addition to the output of the mechanical parameters hardness, tensile strength, yield strength, the anisotropy of the material can be visualized.

User interface i3D software

*These functions can be used with camera and cross table
