Compression on Soft, Flexible Materials

In the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) industry, there is a strong need for a mechanical tester
capable of applying controlled high-resolution forces and has a wide range of travel for exible devices
sensitive to force. To showcase its high resolution and large travel distance capabilities, the Nanovea
Mechanical Tester conducted at-punch compression tests on very soft and exible samples at very low
loads and displacement ranges exceeding 1mm.

Evaluating Brake Pads with Tribology

Brake pads are composites., material made up of multiple ingredients, that must be able to
satisfy a large number of safety requirements. Ideal brake pads have high coecient of friction
(COF), low wear rate, minimal noise, and remain reliable under varying environments. To
ensure the quality of brake pads are able to satisfy their requirements, tribology testing can be
used to identify critical specications.

Quality Analysis on Electrical Discharge Machined Metals

Electrical discharge machining, or EDM, is a manufacturing process that removes material via electrical
discharges [1]. This machining process is generally used with conductive metals that would be dicult
to machine with conventional methods.

As with all machining processes, precision and accuracy must be high in order to meet acceptable
tolerance levels. In this application note, the quality of the machined metals will be assessed with a
Nanovea 3D non-contact prolometer.
