“The indentation plastometer enables us to generate critical material property data far more efficiently than conventional methods. I have been thoroughly impressed by the machine, it is both easy to use and reliable”

Cloud-based collection, storage, and analysis of PIP test data
In collaboration with the University of Limerick, this case study investigates the suitability of PIP testing to explore the detection of property variations in parts produced through additive manufacturing.
The objective in this study, conducted in collaboration with The Welding Institute, was to determine if PIP testing could accurately map the stress-strain behaviour across a weld with a fine spatial resolution, and to quantify the time and cost savings that PIP offers over traditional tensile testing when used for characterising weld mechanical properties.
The aim of this case study, conducted in conjunction with Ovako, was to use PIP testing to characterise a case-hardened layer by indenting planar surfaces after progressive removal of thin surface layers.
