Wood Wear Testing Using Tribometer

In this study, we simulated and compared the wear testing behaviors of three types of wood to showcase the capacity of Nanovea Tribometer in evaluating the tribological properties of wood in a controlled and monitored manner.

Wood Hardness Measurement

Wood Hardness & Elastic Modulus Using Microindentation

In this application, the Nanovea Mechanical Tester, in microindentation mode is used to compare the mechanical properties of three different types of wood. We would like to showcase the capacity of Nanovea Mechanical Tester in performing hardness and Young’s modulus on wood samples with high precision and reproducibility.

Surface Finish Inspection of Wood

Surface Finish Inspection of Wood Using 3D Profilometry

In this study, the Nanovea ST500 Profilometer, equipped with a line sensor and integrated optical microscope,  is used for surface finish inspection of wood samples, namely Cherry and Walnut. We showcases the capacity of Nanovea non-contact profilometer in providing fast and precise 3D finish measurement and comprehensive in-depth analysis for comparative review.
