The CB500 mechanical tester from Nanovea is capable of scratch, hardness and wear testing across Nano or Micro load ranges all on one compact desktop tool. All test modes utilise true closed loop feedback load control from independent load and depth sensors giving unmatched accuracy and repeatability.
This mechanical tester is a compact benchtop tool with a 100 x 50mm stage for labs where space is limited but quality of testing is still very important.
Nanovea Inc are based in Irvine, a tech hub of Southern California. They have been redefining standards in quality control and materials development internationally for over a decade. Nanovea’s instruments can be found in renowned education and industrial organisations around the world.
The CB500 mechanical tester has a wide range of testing capabilities all with high accuracy and repeatability.
The CB500 is configured during the build for Nano or Micro testing.
