The Hysitron TI 950 TriboIndenter is the next generation nanomechanical test instrument providing industry-leading sensitivity and unprecedented performance. The TI 950 nano-indenter has been developed as an automated, high throughput instrument to support the numerous nanomechanical characterisation techniques developed by Hysitron.

The TI 950 nano-indenter system incorporates the newly developed performech™ Advanced Control Module, which greatly improves the precision of feedback-controlled nanomechanical testing, provides dual head testing capability for nano/micro scale connectivity and offers unprecedented noise floor performance. The numerous nanomechanical testing techniques currently offered, as well as new testing methods currently being developed, make the TI 950 nano-indenter system an exceptionally versatile and effective nanomechanical characterisation tool for the broadest range of applications.
