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”

Dr. Cote is an Assistant Professor in Materials Science & Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute
This a review paper covering Profilometry-based Indentation Plastometry (PIP) a novel method for rapidly inferring stress/strain curves from indentation test data.
In this paper with Professor Roger Reed a Dr. Tony Tang at Oxford University, we explore the power of PIP testing to characterize the plasticity of additively manufactured alloys
This is a collaborative study with the The National Physical Laboratory, the UK's national measurement facility. In this work we to compare the accuracy of the PIP method to that of Instrumented Indentation Testing (IIT) at inferring stress/strain behavior from indentation test data.
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.
