Delve deeper into your studies on the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties.
Minimal sample preparation and rapid testing turnaround times significantly accelerate your research activities.
Fully characterise the strength of your metallic materials to support the design of new alloy systems.
Test small coupons, big coupons, off-cuts, cubes, cylinders, random shapes and real components.
We understand the importance of experimental test equipment and the role it can play in ground-breaking research. We're here to help.
“Having the Indentation Plastometer allows us to significantly reduce the sample size required, not only saving time and material resources, but allowing us to generate mechanical data which we have yet to see on our materials”

The effect of dispersed porosity within a metal on its plastic deformation is examined, and the suitability of applying the PIP methodology is also assessed.
This paper concerns tensile-compressive asymmetry (TCA) in a Mg-based alloy (an unusual characteristic in some metallic systems) whereby the yield stress in tension differs from that in compression. We investigate whether the PIP testing methodology can be used to reliably infer stress-strain characteristics in material of this type.
This investigation concerns the application of the profilometry-based indentationplastometry (PIP) methodology to obtain stress-strain relationships for material in the vicinity of fusion welds.
We design and deliver bespoke technical courses and we organise and host conferences covering key areas in materials science, mechanics and mechanical testing. Courses are delivered in Cambridge, by our team of world leading materials scientists. See below for upcoming events.
The team and I have a long history of working together on advanced, materials-related research projects. We're committed to continuing this tradition here at Plastometrex, and to supporting other materials scientists with our technical outreach work, our training courses and our conferences.
