Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

A.P.E. Research develops and produces Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM) for surface analysis and for biological applications, and high-resolution scientific instrumentation for nanotechnologies. The technological core business of A.P.E. Research is the Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM).
A.P.E. Research has its own laboratory for instrumentation development and moreover the company is involved in several research projects of Italian, European and International research institutes and Universities in developing new scanning probe microscopes and innovative techniques for probe microscopy. The result of this research activity allows the company to supply always the state of the art products in a wide range of fields.
The A.P.E. Research catalog contains a standard version of Scanning Tunneling Microscopes (STM), Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) and Near Field Optical Microscopes (SNOM). All these products can be provided with many additional tools and customized to meet the needs of the customer.
The company started at the AREA Science Park in 1997 and since 1999 is officially recognized as a spin-off from the INFM (Italian National Institute for Condensed Matter Physics).

There is always more to see. And when you’re working with electron microscopy, the closer you can get to your sample, the more of its secrets it will reveal. That’s why at Gatan we have spent the last 50 years working with our customers to push the boundaries of what can be done with electron microscopy. Together, we have invented new approaches to problems that deliver fresh understanding. With state of the art cameras, imaging energy filters, specimen preparation equipment and other EM products and solutions, we take the most powerful microscopy on earth and make it work even harder for you.
