ABOUT THE PRODUCT

The high strain-rate module (HSRM) allows for dynamic testing with extremely high strain rates of up to 3’000 s-1 (under certain conditions 10’000 s-1). The high strain-rate module relies on the same piezo technology as the standard nanoindenter but with enhanced performances thanks to an optimized design.
