Nanovea has introduced the N3 line with dedication to providing high-end measurement technology to the broader market. Nanovea has fully automated three of their most requested measurement techniques (indentation, roughness and wear testing) while designing to price in the $20K market. The N3 Line ushers in a new era by providing measurement capability that until this point targeted the large budgets of high end research. Essentially, like most technological advancements, price has kept measurement capability out of the reach of the broader market. The N3 Line has arrived to change that.


M3 | Fully Automated Nanoindentation

M3 | Automated Nano or Microindentation
The M3 is a breakthrough in technology that aims at two distinct aspects missing in the hardness testing market. First, the combination of three factors never before available: automated controlled load & depth, nano through micro range (ASTM E2546) with a competitive price to compete in the $20K market. This provides universities and smaller R&D units to affordable nanoindentation capability. The M3 introduces an entirely new user capability within this price range, providing affordable access too quick and easy nanoindentation results under ASTM standard. Second, is to offer next generation technology to replace the traditional Visual Micro Vickers Hardness Testers that have not changed in more than 15 years. To achieve this, the indentation method has been made fully automated with no need to visually observe the indent which eliminates user error or problems with image recognition software that may have issues with material color and texture. Also, this new technology can achieve lower load and will work on thin coatings and all ranges of materials including ceramics, polymers, metals and others. The fully automated system has a touch screen start that gives automatic average of multiple measurements in minutes. The unit is compact and fully contained with only one standard electrical cable to connect. Because of these advancements in technology and the very competitive price, the M3 line will be the replacement of choice for older Micro Vickers Tester currently used in industrial high throughput quality control environments. Input function includes: Load, Creep Time & Material Type. Output function includes: Hardness, Youngs Modulus & Creep Depth.

Low Price Nano or Microindentation (ASTM E2546) Fully automated with touchscreen Compact contained design • First of its kind


P3 | Fully Automated Roughness Measurement

P3 | Automated Surface Roughness Measurement
The P3 is a significant advancement with 3D non contact profilometry, providing automatic nano through micro surface roughness (ISO 25178) measurement and height data on nearly any material; a capability unavailable in the $20k market. The P3 will provide to a broader market in need of automatic nano through micro roughness data without the high cost associated with a complete Profilometer system. Input function includes: Area, Sample Size & Reflectivity. Output function includes: Roughness & False Color Height Map.

• Low Price Nano through Micro surface roughness measurement (ISO 25178) • Fully automated with touchscreen • Compact contained design • First of its kind

T# | Fully Automatedd Nano Wear Testing

T3 | Automated Nano through Micro WearTesting
The T3, like the M3 was developed to provide quick, easy and affordable access to high end mechanical measurement capability. The T3 is an automatic nano through micro wear tester using linear reciprocating for wear rate study (ASTM G133). Until now, there has never been such an highly advanced option for wear rate study in the $20k price range. The T3 utilizes the same head as the M3 providing percisley controled load and depth during wear testing. Input function includes: Load, Duration, Wear Length & Ball Tip Radius. Output function includes: Wear Rate & Depth vs. Time.
