The iNano nanoindenter offers accuracy and precision
at a price that puts nanoindentation capability into reach for any lab’s budget, from leading universities to high tech companies.
With flexibility in mind, the iNano allows for a wide range of test including, but not limited to, frequency specific experiments, storage and loss modulus, modulus and hardness (Oliver and Pharr) and constant strain rate.
Electromagnetic actuators are used in all systems produced by Nanomechanics Inc., including the iNano. These actuators are robust linear devices that inherently decouple force and displacement. They offer a maximum force of 50 mN, resolution of 3 nN and ultra low noise floors of less < 50 nN.
With a time constant of 20 micro seconds, the iNano is the only commercial nanoindenter to simultaneously meet specs for a maximum indenter travel of 50 m, a noise floor of < 0.1 nm, a digital resolution of 0.001 nm and drift rates of < 0.05 nm/s.
To ensure the widest range and most reliable data in the industry, iNano is capable of dynamic excitation frequencies from 0.1 Hz to 1 kHz.
Available method packs containing tips, methods and standards for polymers, thin films, and biomaterials
Available scratch option featuring a maximum normal load of 50 mN, maximum scratch distance of 2.5mm and a maximum scratch speed of 500 μm/s.
Available Remote Video Option provides two dierent viewing angles within the iNano chamber with a USB camera in addition to the standard microscope objective.
Sample stage movement of 25 mm in the Z axis, 100 mm in the X, and 150 mm in the Y axis allows testing of a wide range of sample heights, and over a large sample area.
Load-frame stiffness > 1,000,000 N/m
Unique tip-calibration system integrated into the software that allows for fast, accurate and automated tip calibration.
3D and 4D mapping of materials with optional NanoBlitz Topography and Tomography software.
