Your expert for the characterization of mechanical surface properties of thin films
ASMEC Advanced Surface Mechanics GmbH was established in 2003 by Dr. Thomas Chudoba, who is a recognized expert in the field of surface mechanics and nanoindentation for many years. In August 2011 the Zwick Roell Group has acquired the majority of the ASMEC GmbH in Radeberg. The Zwick Roell Group, with its main quarter in Ulm (Germany), is one of the world’s leading suppliers of materials and component testing systems for R&D and quality assurance. The acquisition expands the group's portfolio with regard to the micro and nano ranges of mechanical test equipment. This represents an important issue, as mechanical characterization and optimization of coated surfaces is meanwhile necessary in almost all technical fields. ASMEC's measurement technique enables the determination of the necessary mechanical parameters.
ASMEC - being a member of the Zwick Roell Group since July 2011 – has been your supplier regarding nanomechanical test equipment. Starting July 1st 2015 ASMEC products are integrated into the product portfolio of Zwick GmbH...
Since 2012 a new electronics in version 4 is available for all ASMEC instruments. It increases the resolution and reduces the noise level by at least a factor of 2.
