Measure tensile stress strain curves in 3 minutes

Profilometry-based Indentation Plastometry (PIP) is a revolutionary new approach to the mechanical testing of metals.

Indentation plastometer - stress/strain curves from indentation mechanical tests

Next-generation mechanical materials testing

Profilometry-based Indentation Plastometry (PIP) can be used to measure full tensile stress-strain curves and metal strength parameters in just a few minutes. Minimal sample preparation is needed, and real components can be tested.

Quick results

Measure stress-strain curves and metal strength parameters in just a few minutes.

Testing versatility

Test real components, small samples and map properties over surfaces.

Trusted precision

Developed by materials scientists from the University of Cambridge, used by top-tier universities and industry leaders.

“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”

Prof. Roger Reed FREng FIMMM

Professor of Materials and Solid Mechanics | University of Oxford

The Indentation Plastometer

Conventional mechanical testing is too difficult, too expensive and too inflexible. Plastometrex Technologies are changing this. The Indentation Plastometer is a bench-top macromechanical testing device that extracts accurate stress strain curves from indentation test data.
